REFRIGERATORS— Though hampered with dif- 
ficult work, these three NSU coeds will be able to 
enjoy a mid-night snack while studying so diligently. 

Thirty Refrigerators 
Scheduled To Arrive 

Thirty additional 
refrigerators have been ordered 
by AMS for Northwestern 
students. Seventy have also 
been ordered to be distributed 
to nursing students in 

The tentative arrival date will 
be in two weeks. A specific date 
was not given. 

The program, started during 
the summer semester was 
brought about through the ef- 
forts of Spanky Baker and Mr. 
Fred Bosarge of AMS. Bill 
Baskerville, the present AMS 
president, is continuing the 

A five year contract has been 
signed with the Norcold 
Company. After this time, if the 
program is successful, the 
refrigerators may be turned in 
for new ones. 

The proceeds from this 
project will be set aside to build 
a scholarship fund. 

The condition the 
refrigerators are kept in by the 

students will determine 
whether or not the contract will 
be renewed. 

The initial work force con- 
sisted of two hired workers, H. 
R. Templin and Robert Tooke, 
SGA members and their 

"We appreciate the patience 
students had with lines and the 
slow process," said Bill 
Baskerville," but we hope to 
improve the distribution 
process in the future." 

Baskerville also asked that 
students moving to other dorms 
tell their house mothers where 
the refrigerators will be used. 

Any student having trouble 
with his refrigerator is asked to 
call H. R. Templin, Robert 
Tooke, or Bill Baskerville. 

Approximately 500 
refrigerators have been 
distributed. 200 were given out 
in two and a half hours Sept. 9. 
300 were given out Sept. 10 in 
only three hours.

VA Suggestions 
Concern Checks 

Veterans at Northwestern 
vh o are looking forward to 

receiving monthly G.I. checks 
nis ; semester were offered 
several suggestions by the 
week*" 8 Administratio n this 

(1) Turn in your Certificate of 
Eligibility to the college 
^gistrar when you register-or 
38 soon as possible. 

(2) See to it that this 
enrollment form is returned 
Promptly to the VA by the 
Northwestern registrar. 

The law requires that the VA 
^"st be notified »* the 
veteran has actually oiled 
kefore processing the check, 
and in practice, this means 
m ost Northwestern veterans 

should receive their first check 
in October. 

If the VA is not notified of the 
veteran's enrollment early 
enough, it will not be able to get 
out his first check until 

If a veteran does not receive 
his check within a few weeks 
after the school registrar 
returns the enrollment cer- 
tificate to VA, the veteran 
should notify his nearest VA 

The VA also explained that 
the veteran must have returned 
his Certificate of Pursuit card 
for the last semester if 
previously enrolled under the 
G.I. Bill. This is normally done 
during the last month of the 
semester, but is often forgotten. 

Name Change

UNIVERSITY — More than 2,000 freshmen reporting to the Northwestern State 
University campus Sunday and Monday for testing, orientation and registration 
for the fall semester were greeted at the entrance by a huge new sign 
proclaiming Northwestern 's university status which was approved by the 
Louisiana Legislature. Among Purple Jackets who assisted the new students 
this fall are Christi Conine, left, and Cynthia Phillips, both seniors from Nat- 

Northwestern 's 86th year 
opens this fall with many new 
benefits for the student body, 
bringing them a university 
status, new buildings, im- 
provement of older buildings, 
and projects for Showcase 70. 

The first attempt to make 
Northwestern a university in 
1969, failed when a legislative 
bill was vetoed by the governor. 
The bill was referred to the 
State Board of Education and 
later signed into law June 18, 

The first graduating class of 
NSU was in August, with its 
first two doctorates, Raymond 
McCuin Gilbert, and Harold 

President Kilpatrick cites 
the new status as a boost to the 
changes of employment for 
each individual graduate. 
University graduates are 
usually considered by em- 
ployers before college 

New Curriculum 
Instituted Here 

A new addition to NSU's 
curriculum is Aviation Science. 
The course offers 23 semester 
hours credit leading to a minor 
in Aviation Science. 

Director of Aviation Science 
is Raymond Carney, a 1967 
graduate of NSU. Assisting 
Carney with flight standards is 
David Calloway with five hours 
flying experience. Carney has 
ten years flying experience. 

The expense of flight labs or 
flight courses is $385 in addition 
to regular tuition fees. All 
aviation students must be 
enrolled at Northwestern. 
The program provides cer- 

tificates and ratings to qualify 
for private pilot, commercial 
pilot, instrument ratings, flight 
instructor, airline transport, 
instrument flight instructor, 
and multi-engine ratings. 

Carney commented that 
enrollment in the new 
curriculum "went beyond our 
wildest expectations." Ground 
instruction students numbered 
lio and SO students signed up for 
flying classes. 

Quality instruction, good 
supervision, and two new 
Cessna 150 planes are parts of 
the program. 

SGA President 
Greets Students 

by David Precht 

This year it becomes my 
opportunity to welcome 
students both old and new to 
Northwestern State University 
as student body president. 

Many changes have been 
made in this institution and its 
government in addition to the 
recent acquisition of university 

It is sincerely hoped that 
students will take advantage of 
SGA as one of the most im- 
portant avenues of expression 
available at NSU. It is the 
obligation of all students to help 
make their governing body (the 
SGA) aware of problem areas 

on this campus, for represen- 
tative government can only 
function effectively if make 
their own desires known. 

In an era of nearly universal 

campus unrest and conflict, it 
becomes imperative that 
students seek solutions to their 
problems in a rational- peaceful 
manner. It is therefore the 
purpose of the Student 
Government Association to 
provide those solutions. 

Involvement is an integral 
function of every student, 
whether or not he takes ad- 
vantage of his opportunities to 
become involved. Regardless of 
which of the many forms of 
involvement a student may 
take— criticism, campaigning, 
seeking offices on SGA, or 
voting-he is depriving himself 
of an important facet of his 
educational experience if he 
does not choose at least one. 

It is therefore important 
every "aware" student make 
himself heard, if not seen, in the 
realm of student government. 

COMING ENTERTAINMENT— Included in the Big 
Name Entertainment series for the fall semester will 
be the Friends of Distinction. Turning out such 
popular songs as "Grazing In The Grass," the group 
will perform in the Prather Coliseum Sept. 30. 

Friends Of Distinction 
To Appear In Concert 

President's Welcome 

The administration, faculty, and staff of 
Northwestern State University are happy to 
welcome all new students and those returning to 
the campus for the Fall Semester of 1970. It is our 
hope that the educational goals you have set will 
be accomplished while you are here. Always 
know that we are here to help you in any way that 
we can to attain these goals, and should you 
need help please do not hesitate to let us Know. 

Noteworthy accomplishments have been made 
at Northwestern State University recently and 
we look forward with a great deal of anticipation 
to further strides of progress this year. 

The fine spirit and excellent behavior of North- 
western students are always a source of pride. It 
is our hope that the friendly atmosphere you find 
here at Northwestern will be enhanced by your 

Please feel free to visit my office any time that 
I may be of help to you. 

Arnold R. Kilpatrick, President.

Coffee House 

The Purple Light Coffee 
House, sponsored by the 
Student Union Music and Films 
Committee, is a member of the 
Coffee House Circuit. Three 
years ago the circuit consisted 
of eight North Carolina 
colleges. This year, there are 
200 college members 
representing all areas of the 
United States. 

The Purple Light is one of six 
university coffee houses in La. 
which provide professsional 
entertainment in an informal 
atmosphere. Dave Bradstreet, 
who appeared Sept. 14, 15, and 
16 in the Student Union 
Cafeteria, was the first en- 
tertainer to appear at the 
Purple Light. 

The Friends of Distinction are 
Harry Elston, Floyd Butler, 
Jessica Cleaves, and Barbara 
Jean Love. The group made its 
debut in the summer of 1968 at 
the Daisy in Hollywood. They 
were immediately signed to the 
management firm of actor- 
football star Jim Brown and 
brought to the attention of RCA. 

Harry Elston, the group's 
writer, composed the lyrics to 
Hugh Masekela's "Grazin' in 
the Grass," which was their 
initial single for RCA. It is also 
in their debut Victor album, 
"Grazing' ". 

Harry Elston and Floyd 
Butler met as members of the 
Ray Charles group. Jessica 
Cleaves was introduced to the 
group by Butler whom she met 
while working with the Los 
Angeles Urban League. Bar- 
bara Jean Love joined the group 
six months before their debut at 
the Daisy. 

The group has also appeared 
at The Factory, the Beverly 
Hilton in Los Angeles, and Mr. 
D's in San Francisco. 

SGA Freshmen 
To Be Selected 

The SGA Election Board has 
made plans for the SGA Fresh- 
men Elections. The officers to 
be elected are Freshman 
President, Vice-President, 
Secretary-Treasurer, Men's 
Representative, and Women's 

Notices of intention are to be 
secured in the Dean of Student's 
Office, room 308, of the Student 
Union. Each candidate is to 
complete the notice of intention 
and return it to the Dean of 
Student's Office before 4:00 

Northwestern is the oldest 
school under the State Board of 
Education, established in 1884 
as a State Normal School. Now 
Northwestern has six un- 
dergraduate colleges, and is one 
of the largest graduate schools 
in Louisiana, offering master's, 
specialist's, and doctor's 

Construction projects totaling 
more than $5 million were 
completed this summer. In- 
cluded were a $2 million 
Teacher Education Center, $1.7 

million Biological Sciences 
Building, and $1.2 million 
Physical Education Building. 

Other small projects are also 
being conducted this semester 
to improve the university. 
Several older buildings are 
being air-conditioned, and 
parking areas are being 
enlarged and improved. 

The Demon Fountain which 
was at the main entrance to the 
university for several years, 

has been installed in the patio of 
the Student Union. 

Student Union Governing 
Board members are also 
proceeding with plans for 
Showcase 70, which will bring a 
half-dozen big-name en- 
tertainers to the campus during 
the year. A new program being 
planned by the board is the 
Coffeehouse Circuit, which will 
feature popular bands and 
entertainers performing in a 
nightclub setting on campus. 

In athletics, Northwestern 's 
Demons are a consensus to win 
the Gulf States Conference, and 
the basketball team has been in 
the NAIA regional playoffs for 

three consecutive years. North- 
western's gymnastics team is 
defending the national 
collegiate championship this 

NSU is also the home of Miss 
Louisiana, Carol Almond of 
Haynesville. She is a sophomore 
vocational home economics 
education major. 

Dorm Initiates 
No Hour System 

Certain NSU coeds are now 
able to experience the pleasures 
of a "no hour" curfew. The 
system, initiated this semester 
gives any senior or junior girl 
with a 3.0 average a chance to 
live in the no hour dorm, East 

"The girls must have no 
discipline problem, such as 
probation and they must have 
parental permission," said 
Dean Hendrick, Dean of Women 

This idea, initiated by the 
administration, was brought up 
at one of last year's A.W.S. 
meetings where the women 
dorm residents voted five to one 
in favor of it. 

Residents of the no hour dorm 
sign out if they will be gone 
after 11 pm. or all day, and 

state their specific destination. 
Girls must call the dorm if they 
will be delayed for any reason 
and if a resident does not arrive 
at the dorm within one hour of 
her specified time of return, a 
search is started. The girls 
voted in favor of this search for 
their own protection. At least 
one security guard is on duty in 
the living room of the dorm 
during the night. After fresh- 
man hours the guard allows 
girls entrance only after they 
have shown their I.D. cards. 

So far, there have been no 
problems with the no hour 
dorm. There are eighty-three 

living in East Varnado at this 
time. The system, however, is 
on a trial basis. If it continues to 
run smoothly, it may be ex-

Dear Editor, 

Even though East Varnado is

girls of Varnado would like to 
commend the fair-mindedness 
and progressive thinking of the 
administration for allowing the 
girls a chance to prove their 
maturity by allowing them the 
responsibility of governing their 
own hours.

and be established as a per-

B. Jones 

Newspapers since their beginning, have had 
two major functions-the function of informing 
the people (the news function) and the function 
of expressing opinions (the editorial function). 
Each editor has the choice ot which of the two 
functions he will stress. 

Since I believe the most important function of 
any newspaper to be thp news function-I intend 
to stress this function in the Current Sauce and 
work for the betterment of news coverage to help 
inform the NSU students of what is happening on 
the campus as well as conveying other in- 
formation which will be beneficial to the student. 

With concentration on the news function, the 
Current Sauce will not have an editorial page as 
such. The top half of page two (2) will be devoted 

to short editorials and opinion features from 
week to week when the editor feels such 
editorials to be useful and necessary. Striving to 
fill up a whole page with opinion articles seems 
both useless and unnecessary when it is done 
solely for the purpose of filling up a page. 

Editorial subjects must be researched carefully 
and written with an object in mind to make sure 
the job is well done and will serve the purpose for 
which it is intended. Therefore I conclude that a 
few well-written editorials would serve a better 
purpose than a page full of carelessly written

Rush Parties, Teas, Barbecues, Head Greek Activity List 


PI Kappa Phi brothers 
returned last Sunday to begin 
our annual plans for rush. Plans 
for rush were coordinated by 
our National Field Secretary 
Chuck Cummings from 
Charlotte, North Carolina. We 
thank Chuck for the many ideas 
and all the help he gave us 
during the past week. Also 
helping during rush was our 
Rose Miss Diana Ortege and her 
court, Miss Pam Staten and 
Sandra Goudeau.

Northwestern Colony, Theta

for the first Time. The Brothers 
feel, since their Fraternity is 
the newest on the Northwestern 

Campus, having been granted 
colony status in December 1969, 
that this is their year for 
growth. Theta Chi is especially 
proud of being awarded the 
President's Cud for Scholastic 

Supremacy. Theta Chi compiled 

a 2.19 for the fall semester and a 
2.56 for the Spring Semester. 

The Rush parties that have 
been held were the Cocktail 
party at the Pickle Barrel on 

Tuesday, and the Champagne 
Party at the Pickle Barrel on 
Thursday. This weekend Theta 
Chi travels to Stephen F. Austin 

to be entertained by Epsilon 
Tau Chapter after the game.

Phi relaxed with a beer bust at 
the Fountain Blue for all the 
new rushees. Saturday after 
cheering the Demons to victory 
the Pi Kap brothers again 
relaxed with another great 

Plans for the next week in- 
clude a dance Friday night at 
the Fountain Blue at eight 
o'clock, with music by Pilte. We 
also plan to attend the Steven F. 
Austin game Saturday night. 

Pi Kap would like to thank all 
the rushees in participating in 
all our rush functions. We an- 
ticipate a fine new pledge class 
to spring from this years rush. 


Once again the traditions of 
college life at NSU have begun 
to bloom in full, and the 
brothers of Kappa Alpha are 
busy with rush and are anxious 
to wind up the activities with 
pledging ceremonies this 
Monday night. 

The men of Gamma Psi met 
early in the semester to try and 
do a little work on the house. 
Several of the brothers worked 
and painted in order to preserve 
the beauty of our Kappa Alpha 
Southern Mansion. 

After the strenuous activities 
of remodeling, the brothers met 
at a favorite spot for a get- 
together beer bust and welcome 
back party. 

With rush in full swing on 
Sunday, the chapter looked 
forward to four more parties 
and a full calendar the following 

The building of a fratv ity 
house has entered into he 
picture of the Gamma Psi 
Chapter, and the men were all 
eager to learn the news of the 
training school held in Austin, 

With rush about to come to an 
end and school in full swing, the 
men of Gamma Psi wish all luck 
and an especially loud Rebel 
Yell for that tough Demon 


The brothers returned to 
Natchitoches a week early in 
order to get their house ready 
for the fall semester. Kappa 
Sigma 's main concern for the 
past week has been rush. 
Various keg parties and a 
barbeque have been held in an 
effort to meet potential pledges. 

Tomorrow the Sigs will 
continue rush with a ski party 
during the afternoon at the 
home of Arthur Watson, one of 
our alumni, and a dance at the 
Fountain Blue beginning at 8 
pm. The "Elastic Band" will 
provide the entertainment. 

All rushees are invited to 
attend both activities and 
further information can be 
obtained at the Kappa Sigma 


The brothers of Nu Chapter 
started the fall semester in a big 
way; opening with several keg 
parties, a gumbo supper and a 
victory dance after the ball 
game. This week's activities 
include another keg party, a 
dance Friday night and a trip to 
SFA for the ballgame Saturday. 
The brothers have chartered 
two Trailway buses and are 
looking forward to attending the 
game and a party being held in 
their honor by the brothers at 

Rush is going good and 
pledging will be Monday,

Having begun life as a small 
seed in the basement of Cald- 
well Hall in 1955, Northwestern 
State College's Audio Visual 
Center has grown into a 
flowering plant with several 
limbs. Northwestern 's A.V. 
Center now serves the college in 
a large variety of ways. 

According to Dr. Thomas 
Hennigan, director of the 
Educational Media Center, the 
center is currently providing 
the college with five basic 
services, film library; graphics 
production; photographies 
production; instructional 
television*, and academic 

Begun as part of the original 
center in 1955, the Film Library 
is unique even today as being 
one of nine regional such 
libraries in the state. Funded 
primarily by the State 
Department of Education, the 
film library has an inventory of 
more than 4,000 16mm motion 
pictures as well as the equip- 
ment for their maintenance and 

Hennigan also pointed out 
that N.S.C.'s film library "is an 
integral part of a statewide 
program." Films from the 
library here are used by schools 
throughout the state and may be 
exchanged for other films at 
any of the other regional 
libraries. The only fee charged 
for the films is the return 

The film library is presently 
under the direstion of Mrs. R. L. 
Russell, who is in charge of 16 
student workers. 

Joining the A.V. Center in 
1956 was a Campus 
Photography Service. 
Originally a part of the A.V. 
Center, this service is now 
under the auspices of the 
Division of Informational 
. Services, directed by Jerry 

Headed by Lamar Bates, this 
service provides complete 
photographic coverage of 
campus activities. The photos 
taken are used in news and 
college public information 
sources, as well as in college 
publications and for college 
course instruction. 

This service provides both 
black and white and color still 
photographs, as well as color 
slides and color and black and 
white 8mm and 16mm motion 

Correlating to the in- 
structional services provided by 
the photographic department 
are those of the campus-wide 
closed-circuit television 
system operated here at Nor- 
thwestern. Put into operation in 
1960, the system is now directed 
by Tommy Whitehead, a 1966 
N.S.U. graduate. 

The system includes three 
live studio camera chains, 
broadcast quality helical scan 
and quadruplex videotape, and 

a two channel RF distribution 
system which links all major 
classroom buildings on campus 
through the use of coaxial cable. 
The system's studies, which 
distribute the campus 
programs, videotape recor- 
dings of instructional 
programs, and videotapes of 
college activities used on 
commercial stations, are 
located on the ground floor of 
the Arts and Sciences building. 

Capable of providing in- 
struction for more than 1,000 
students simultaneously, the 
system has been used to teach 
Biology, Physics, English 
Composition, Orientation, 
Literature, Psychology, and 
Health classes. 

Operated by Dr. Hennigan 
and Mr. Whitehead, the 
television system also employs 
the help of Paul Keyser, chief 
engineer, Billy St. Andre, 
electrical technician, and three 
student workers, Lacy Breeden, 
Paul Keyser Jr., and Mack 

Another division of the center, 
which aids the faculty, is a 
graphical teaching aids 
production area. This area 
provides facilities for the 
faculty to make charts, posters, 
graphs, and overhead tran- 
sparencies through the use of 
lettering thermographic 
reproduction, drawing, and 

This section of the center is 
also utilized in the teaching of 
both undergraduate and 
graduate courses in the 
selection, production, and 
operation of instructional aids. 

One other division, which is 
aimed at academic instruction, 
is an area of the center whicn 
provides course instruction for 
both the School of Education 
and School of Liberal Arts. 

The courses which deal with 
Audio Visual Education, 
Television Production 
Techniques, and Television 
Direction Principles, are of- 
fered through the Departments 
of Secondary Education, and 
Speech and Journalism. In- 
cluded in the courses on the 
undergraduate level are audio 
visual materials selection, 
utilization, and production. 
Graduate courses provide 
experience in selection, 
utilization, production, design, 
and implementation of audio 
visual materials, equipment, 
and systems. 

A final division of the Center 
will be an Instructional 
Materials Center (to be opened 
in conjunction with the new 
Tocher Education Center.) 
This division will provide in- 
structional television services, 
printed and non-printed media 
production, and pre-service and 
in-service instruction of media 
courses for the School of 
Education. Courses will be 
provided which will familiarize 
both future teachers and in- 


Psychedelics " 

Psychedelics, a term familiar 
to most college readers, was 
first coined by Dr. Humphrey 
Osmond in 1957 to describe 
mi n d -exp a n d i n g and 
hallucinogenic drugs. Dr. 
Osmond has recently published 
a book entitled Psychedelics, 
which should be of special in- 
terest to college students. This 
book is a broad and serious 
inquiry into this much discussed 
topic. It will enlighten and 
surprise the uninitiated, as well 
as the frequent user. It includes 
first hand reports of the nature 
°f the experience; recent 
scientific theories; the use of 
Psychedelics in primitive and 
non-western cultures; and the 
sociology of drugs in our own 

society. There are also sections 
on the potential creative uses of 
psychedelics, from the 
enhancement of religious ex- 
periences to the treatment of 
alcoholics and the design of 
mental hospitals. 

The contributions include 
noted scientist, psychologists, 
sociologists, and religious 
leaders. All of them help to 
throw some light on a subject 
which, in spite of the interest it 
generates, has produced a great 
deal of mis-information. 
Government research has in 
fact brought the progress of 
much needed research almost 
to a halt. PSYCHEDELICS is a 
plea for and an invitation to-

service teachers with new in- 
novations and equipment used 
as educational media. 

According to Hennigan, the 
addition of this last division will 
round out the services of North- 
western's Audio Visual Center. 
Originally planned to serve 
three basic purposes, the Center 
will soon provide for each 
adequately. To provide first, an 
Administrative and Academic 
Program in Educational 
Media; secondly, Educational 
Media Services for the School of 
Education; and thirdly, "In- 
Service" Programs in 
Educational Media; the Center 
will be complete with the 
opening of the Teacher 
Education Center.

Focusing our attentions to the 
heavens, astrology and 
horoscopes the following 
forecast will enable our avid 
horoscope watchers to plan 
their upcoming week. 
ARIES (March 21-April 20) You 
have a tendency to be 
domineering and overbearing 
this week, be aware of trouble 
that this might lead you into 
TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Be 
prepared to remain active this 
week as wasted time will only 
prove to be disastrous. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) 
You should have a terrific week, 
for all signs point to you as 
being lovable and quite 
romantic in the days to follow 
CANCER (June 21-July 20) You 
had better be careful this week 
for you will make some very 
heartless and painful decisions. 
Follow your heart more closely. 
LEO (July 21-August 21) Take 
advantage of your present state 
of mind because you will have a 
very sensible week. 
VIRGO (August 22-September

people for if you don't you will 
tend to be shy and be referred to 
as a loner. 

LIBRA (September 23-October

the main ideas that you will 
depend on throughout this week. 
Don't go overboard, however. 
SCORPIO (October 23-

day with a new eagerness you 
will find that you will behave in 
a very broad minded way on 
several occasions. 
SAGITTARIUS (November 23- 
December 20) This week is 
going to be a trying one for you 
as you will be very moody. Be 
especially careful not to hurt

will pay close attention to you 
this week, for you are quite

We know a group of fishermen

The Louisiana Legislature 
passed a bill this summer 
giving university status to 
Northwestern State College. 
This was the fourth name the 
school has had since it was 
established 85 years ago. 

Name changes are not new to 
NSU. Established in 1884 the 
institution had as its first name 
Louisiana State Normal School, 
ducte*. The first classes were 
conducted in 1885, when the 
school had just 27 students and 
three faculty members, in- 
cluding the president, Dr. E.E. 

In 1918, the school began 
granting college degrees, and 
the name was changed in 1921 to 
Louisiana State Normal 
College. Until 1918, the school 
had granted only two-year 

When the name of the in- 
stitution was changed to 
Louisiana State Normal College 
in 1921, the enrollment had 
grown to 663, and the faculty 
numbered 43. 

In 1944, when the school had a 
war-deflated enrollment of 769 
and a faculty of more than 100, 
the name was changed to 
Northwestern State College of 

Northwestern has grown from 
the 27 students making up the 
first class to more than 6000 last 
fall. The faculty is now more 
than 300.

It's Of fen se vs Offense 
In NSU-SFA Match-Up 

By Lynn Rollins 

Northwestern takes its record 
setting ground attack Saturday 
to Stephen F. Austin, the 
nation's total offense leader last 
year, for a contest that should 
keep the scoreboard lights 
flashing more than a 
cooperative pin -ball machine. 

The Lumberjacks amassed 
5018 yards in 1969 and lost only 
offensive starter, although a big 
one in All-American quar- 
terback Robert Pearce. But 
Coach Travis Hughes is con- 
fident that either Gaylor Ramm 
or Dennis Demel will step in and 
improve on last season's 7-3 

SFA's quarterbacks have two 
talented receivers in senior 
Ronnie Hawthorne and junior 
Danny McKeown. The backfield 
also carries an explosive punch 
in Andy Hopkins, a 185 pound 
flash who owns 9.2 speed in the 
100 yard dash. 

The Demons clipped SFA last 
year 37-35 in a free-wheeling 

affair that was highlighted by 
several long scoring plays. NSU 
holds an 18-7-2 advantage over 
the traditional rivals from 
Nacogdoches, Tex. since the 
series started in 1924. 

The Purple and White will try 
to spoil the opener for SFA with 
an offense that produced a Gulf 
States Conference rushing 
record, 539 yards, against 
Florence State last week. 

Seniors signal-caller Mike 
Pool, fullback Richard Ware, 
and halfback Tommy Wallis, 
plus sophomore wingback 
Donald Johnson will man the 
backfield spots. Pool, Wallis, 
and Johnson all cracked the 100 
yard circle in rushing a week 

Up for grabs in the game is 
Chief Caddo, an eight foot, 400 
pound wooden Indian that 
traditionally goes to the win- 
ner's campus for a year's stay. 
Chief Caddo is currently 
stationed in Prather Coliseum. 

Other probable starters for 

Coach Glenn Gossett's squad 
will include AU-GSC selections 
Bobby Koncak and Leslie 
Robertson at guards and center 
Gary McCrary. Leonard 
Richardson and Don Miser will 
be in the line-up at tackles with 
All-GSC end Al Phillips and 
tight end Paul Zoller. 

Defensively Northwestern 
will start Clinton Edey and Tom 
Merritt at the terminal slots, 
two-time All-GSC Walter Edler 
and Craig Tripp at tackles, and 
middle guard Alton Geisen- 

Sterling Baldwin will replace 
the injured Bentley Usey and 
team with transfer Gordon 
Boogaerts to handle the 
linebacking chores. Paul 
Tacker and Ronnie Bagley will 
be at the corners with Kenny 
Hrapmann and freshman John 
Kelley at the safeties to round 
the defensive secondary. 

Game time is 7:30 KNOC AM 
will cover the activities 
beginning at 7:15.

Tom Wallis: Quiet, Well -Mannered 
Off the Field--A "Demon' On It 


Statistics reveal that Nor- 
thwestern State University 
ranked fourth in the six-team 
Gulf States Conference last 
year in rushing defense. 

The defensive interior hardly 
bears the onus because tackles 
Mike Burrow and Walter Edler 
were picked to the Coaches' All- 
GSC team. Alton Geisendorff 
started at middle guard. 

If statistical defensive im- 
provement this year hinges on 
the interior positions, a jump in 
the rankings can be expected. 

Edler and Geisendorff return 
to start again, and two-year 
letterman Craig Tripp stands 
ready to replace the graduated 
Burrow. Sterling Baldwin, 
another letterman, will serve as 
a swingman at both positions. 

"At comparative stages," 
said assistant coach George 
Doherty, "this year's defensive 
interior looks more promising 
than last year's. Naturally, how 
they'll compare at the end 
depends on any progress the 
present athletes make." 

Last fall was Burrow's first as 
a defensive player. Geisendorff 
was force-fed into the lineup 
when an injury sent Bob 
Mc Allen, a returning veteran, 
out of action. Edler, also a 
starter in 1968 and an all-league 
pick, represented the only true 
experience. Tripp made token 
appearances in 1968. 

Edler (a 6-2, 216-pound 
senior from New Orleans 
Warren Easton) is a real 
leader," said Doherty. "He has 
good quickness and is usually 
around the ball." 

Geisendorff (a 6-3, 211-pound 
junior from Houma 
Terrebonne) should surprise 
some people this year," said the 
aide. "He's not as quick as some 
middle guards, but he's 
stronger than most. I think he'll 
make his presence felt a little 
more this year." 

Tripp (a 6-4, 222-pound 
junior from Springhill) hasn't 
played much previously," said 
Doherty. "But he's maturing 
and gaining some agility. We 
have hopes he'll be more than

Saturday marks the opening 
of the teal season in Louisiana 
and unless something drastic 
happens it should be a highly 
profitable season for those who 
hunt. The season runs through 
Sept. 27. The daily bag limit is 
four and you are allowed to 
have eight in possession after 
the first day. Reports from the 
Canadian breeding grounds 
indicate a bumper crop of all 
waterfowl this year and there 
are already a large number of 
teal in the state. Duck stamps 
and licenses are needed for 
hunters 16 years old and older. 

Duck hunters this year have 
the best deal in a decade as far 
as hunting regulations go. This 

Anyone talking to Tommy 
Wallis would never guess he is 
the big, bruising halfback that 
the Northwestern Demons go to 
inside the 5 yard line. 

The well-mannered, humble 
Wallis has been carrying the 
pigskin for the Demons for 
three years. And he started the 
1970 gridiron season against 
Florence State in his almost 
patented defense-tromping 

Tommy, a stout and strong 
187 pounds, bucked his way for 
122 yards in 20 carries last 
week. He broke into paydirt 
twice for the powerful Demons. 

Last year, as a junior, 
Tommy ran 446 yards in 90 
carries as the "third halfback" 
for Coach Glenn Gossett. 

His 4.9 yard average was the 
best in the Demon backfield. 

A bright 1970 season should be 
in store for the running back 
from Benton. His quick cutting, 
hard hitting style is tough to 

The next task for Wallis and 
the Demons is the Stephen F. 
Austin Lumberjacks, who 
posses much experience in 10 
returning starters on offense, a 
lightning fast running back and 
a hefty defense. 

This summer proved to be 
rewarding for Tommy. He 
attended NSU in the summer 
session to earn credits for his 
Industrial Education Drafting 
major. He also got married. 

He said, "My wife has helped 


me in football. She urges me to 
do my best." 

This year marks Tommy's 
10th year in football. His 
carreer started in Benton, La. 
Tommy says he "loves foot- 
ball" and states that the 

Heads Award 

Guard Leslie Robertson came 
away with the highest overall 
grade from last week's 42-21 
thrashing of Florence State and 
was also credited with a team 
high 19 knockdowns to win the 
Knockdown Award. 

Robertson, an All-GSC per- 
former in 1969 scored an 88 per 
cent rating to lead the offensive 

The NSU coaching staff 
grades each individual per- 
former in the different 
categories and gives awards 
after the season to the top 

Fullback Richard Ware was 
the recipient of the Offensive 
Back honor with an 87 percent 

Tom Merritt was ranked at 86 
percent to head the defensive 
linemen and safety Kenny 
Hrapmann copped the 
Defensive Back award with a 78 
percent rating. 

Linebacker Gordon 
Boogaerts had the most in- 
dividual tackles, eight. 

Demons have their "sights set 
on a perfect record". He is 
looking forward to his best year 
in football. 

Besides playing the game he 
enjoys to watch it on television, 
along with all sports. Tommy's 
hobbies include playing cards 
and weight lifting, where ne 
bench presses 320 pounds. 

Demon quarterback Mike 
Pool says of the 3-year let- 
terman "He is a great asset to 
the team as he sparks the spirit 
and leads the squad well" 

With the running of Tommy 
Wallis the Northwestern 
Demons could go undefeated. 
But don't look too far ahead. As 
Tommy likes to think "if you 
look too far ahead you'll trip on 
what's right beside youl' 

So SFA is the next victim of a 
sharp Demon pitchfork-

no penalty and a generous bag

In previous years in order to

leaders were presented the 
Spark Plug Award as the most 
spirited of the 72 collegiate 
squads at the workshop. 
Selection for the award was 
made by the 450 delegates to the 

Other awards the Nat- 
chitoches team won during the 
week-long event include a Spirit 
Stick and five first-place rib- 
bons for cheerleading ex- 
cellence. One first-place ribbon 
was won each day for the five 
days of competition. 

The Northwestern yell 
leaders are also considered 
likely candidates to appear at' 
the 1971 Senior Bowl, whose 
cheerleaders are provided by 
the National Spirit and Sport- 
smanship Workshop at the 
discretion of the national NSSW

Pat Gillmore. 

The other top award of the 
workshop, the Coke Award, 
went to the cheerleaders from 
the University of Tennessee at 

Named for its donor, the Coca 
Cola Bottling Co., the award is 
presented each year to the team 
that displays the greatest ex- 
cellence in the techniques and 
fundamentals at the clinic. 

It consists of a plaque and the 
possibility of an appearance in a 
promotional film for the Coca 
Cola Bottling Co. 

Spirit Sticks were awarded 
other teams that showed en- 
thusiasm and optimism each 
day. Teams were required to 
return their Spirit Sticks after 
one day and try to recapture 
them. Any team that won a 
Spirit Stick three days in a row 
was eligible to keep it. 

Only two teams won 
Sticks as a result of 
consecutive winnings. They

Basic Studies is a program 
developed by the Northwestern 
Administration for the benefit 
of freshmen students and 
transfer students who have 
earned less than 30 semester 
hours of college credit. 

The newly developed College 
of Basic Studies was designed 
"to provide an administrative 
structure to assist freshmen 
students in bridging the gap 
between high school and 
college, and to provide for the 
needs and interests of the fresh- 
men students." stated Dean 
Bennie G. Barron of the College. 

The Department of Coun- 
seling, along with the Depart- 
ment of Testing and the At- 
tendance Counselor aid the 
College of Basic Studies in 
reaching its objective of helping 

freshmen to adjust to college 

The Department of Coun- 
seling has three Counselor - 
Instructors. They are H. H. 
Batiste, 0. E. Billingsley and P. 
H. Dennis. The Counselors are 
to assist students in 
"developing class schedules, 
making vocational choices, and 
any personal problems? 

The Department of Testing, 
which is headed by Dr. T. W. 
McElwee, provides for 
achievement, aptitude and 
personality diagnostic testing 
for students in the College of 
Basic Studies. The Department 
of Testing also serves as a 

testing facility for other schools 
of learning. 

There are approximately 1163 
students in the College of Basic 
Studies. Each student is 
assigned to one of the three 
counselors and will remain in 
the college until that time when 
he or she has earned 30 
semester hours of credit. All 
credit gained will apply to 
credit in upper colleges if it 
applies to that major. 

"The greater workload and 
expense will be worth it if the 
College of Basic Studies aids the 
Freshmen." said Dr. Barron of 
the college. The new system of 
locating advisors and coun- 
selors during registration went 
very smoothly and when asked 
what the greatest difficulty the 
Department had in registration 
Dr. Barron replied "com- 
munication with the new 

Dr. Barron said to put the 
program before the new 
students in an understandable 
manner posed the biggest 

Dr. Barron, who came to 
N.S.U. in 1967, has worked as an 
Assistant Professor in the 
Department of Elementary 
Education, as Director of 
Educational Research in the 
College of Education and as the 
Assistant to the Dean of the 
College of Education before 
becoming the Dean of the 
College of Basic Studies.

Open Letter 

My fellow students: 

The officers of Associated Men Students would 
like to take this opportunity to welcome all new 
and returning men students. We are very 
pleased that each of you chose Northwestern for 
you are now a part of that which makes NSU the 
friendliest school in the South. We hope that your 
career at Northwestern will be a rewarding one 
and that you will utilize every opportunity af- 
forded you. 

We consider one of the most valuable of these 
opportunities to be the Associated Men Students. 
As you may or may not know AMS membership 
is comprised of all undergraduate men students. 
Officers are elected on a yearly basis by a 
campus wide vote. The primary purpose of AMS 
is to promote the general welfare of men 
students; serving as a means of communication 
between the men students and the ad- 
ministration part particularly in regard to 
dormitory affairs; and stimulating good 
citizenship and responsibility among men 
students. Residents of each men's dormitory 
elect representatives who serve on a form 
council within their respective residence halls, 
and who also represent their dormitory in the 
AMS Legislative Branch. The Legislative 
Branch deals with male student affairs on *a 
campus-wide basis. 

Obviously, the effectiveness of the AMS 
depends upon the activism and participation of 
your dorm council-the core of AMS. Your 
representatives to this dorm council and AMS 
will be elected Monday. Sept. 28 and Tuesday, 
Sept. 29. Therefore, we can not stress enough the 
importance of electing capable men from your 
respective dormitory wings that will take an 
earnest interest in your welfare for this, a very 
responsible position. No other organization on 
campus can be quite as valuable to you if taken 
seriously for it is your means of expressing 
yourself to the administration and SGA. 

We are sure that many ot you are wondering 
what the $.50 that you paid upon entering your 
dorms will be used for. This money was taken in 
by the AMS to be alocated to you for reasonable 
dormitory improvements that you might 
request. Do not waste your money! Ask that such 
improvements be made!. 

I need not restate the potential power of AMS 
and your dormitory council. The game area in 
Rapides dormitory and the AMS refrigerator 
rental is more than sufficiant evidence. I can 
only remind you of your obligation to yourself 
and fellow students in the upcoming AMS 
representative election. These newly elected 
representatives will meet the following Thur- 
sday. Oct. 1, to voice your opinions. Do not take 
this article lightly! Your involvement with 
Associated Men Students could be the most 
important step you can make toward your 
general welfare.

of Associated Men Students

Work on the new Nor- 
thwestern State University 
Library Building will begin 
around the first of the year, 
according to Lor and Lindsey, 
property manager and building 
program coordinator. 

The three story $3 million 
library will be erected near the 
present site of Scheib Hall. The 
front of the building will face 
College Avenue, Lindsey said. 

DeKeyser, Ponthie, and Boote 
of Alexandria and L. Jaco 
Leblance of Lafayette will be 
the architects, according to 
Donald MacKenzie, head 

The new library will be 
capable of holding over 300,000 
volumes as compared to the 
195,000 volumes now contained 
in the old building. The new 
library will be able to ac- 
commodate between 1,200 and 
1,555 students, MacKenzie said. 
The old building could hold only 
300 students. 

The first floor will contain 
serials and reference materials. 
Books, including the Louisiana 
collection now stored in the 

Buses Available 
For Charter 
To NLSU Game 

Student body president David 
Precht announced Monday 
night that the SGA School Spirit 
Committee will charter at least 
three buses to the Northeast 
Louisiana football game in 
Monroe Oct. 3. 

Bus fares for the round trip 
will be $4.50 per seat on any of 
the three or more buses, ac- 
cording to Spirit Committee 
chairman Ronnie Morrow. 

Morrow also said that the 
seats will be sold on a "first- 
come, first-served basis," but 
that Greek or other groups may 
"block-book" buses through the 
SGA if the organization notifies 
the committee by Monday af- 
ternoon. Additional buses will 
be chartered if necessary. 

Tickets to the game are on 
sale this afternoon from 2 to 5 
p.m. in the SGA office, and will 
be sold at that time on Monday 
and Wednesday. Bus fares are 
also available from 10 a. m. to 5 
p.m. Tuesday, Morrow said. 

It was added Monday night 
that the deadline for acquiring 
seats on the buses will be 5 p.m. 
Wednesday, Sept. 30. 

Precht stated that "the 
purpose of chartering the buses 
to the game is to help create 
greater school spirit in the 
endeavors of the Demons, and 
to provide safe transportation to 
and from the game for NSU 

A leaving time and place will 
be announced later. 

Student Union, will be stored on 
the second and third floors, 
MacKenzie said. 

The new building will contain 
90,000 square feet of floor space 
compared to the 40,000 square 
feet contained in the old 
building, MacKenzie pointed 

Private cubicles for graduate 
students, rooms for group 
study, and rooms where 
students can listen to records or 
watch films are some of the 
many new features of the new 

The building is being con- 
structed so that two more floors 
can be added at a later date. 
The building will require two 
years for completion, Lindsey 

Lab Established 
In Speech Dept. 

The new speech laboratory, 
located on the second floor of 
the Fine Arts Building, is now 
open for use, according to Dr. 
Edna West, head of the speech 
and journalism departments. 

The laboratory, similar in 
design to the language lab, 
contains 15 booths. It is con- 
troled in the front by the master 
console. Each booth contains a 
tape recorder, head set and 
small microphone. The in- 
structor is able to listen to one 
or more students by using a 
switch-board type of equipment 
in front of her. 

The students can make their 
own voice tapes, or can use 
recorded voice exercises given 
to them by their instructors. 

This is used to help students 
make corrections in their vocal 
qualities after hearing them- 
selves speak. 

The laboratory is available to 
certain speech classes once a 
week. Each Speech 101 class 
will be assigned to this lab 
program. Other speech classes 
will use it, but not all speech 
classes require this. 

There are also open labs held 
from 1 to 3 on Mondays and at 3 
on Tuesdays. These labs are 
available to students who wish 
additional practice. This is on a 
voluntary basis. Michael 
Atkins, graduate assistant, will 
be in charge of the laboratory 
during these sessions. Students 
are asked to contact him when 
they want to schedule a session 
in the lab. 

"The purpose of this lab is to 
give the students a chance to 
hear themselves and practice 
vocal exercises to improve their 
vocal quality pronunciation, 
and projection. It will improve 
the voice personality," ex- 
plained Dr. West. 

Freshmen Elect 
Class Officers 

Work To Begin 
On New Library 

by Niva Chavez 

Fifteen students have filed as

the coming SGA Freshman 
Elections on Sept. 29, according 
to the SGA Election Board, Bill 
Baskerville and Lynn Killen, 

Students seeking presidential 
appointment are Ken Gorsha, 
Chris Prestenback, John 
Stansberry, and Lee Walker. 
Vice-Presidential candidates

Beach, John Russ Daniel, Barry 
LaRoux, and Marcia Nicosia. 
Diane Gray and Michael J. 
Struna are seeking the office of

is sought after by Mary Lynn 

Each candidate for office will 
be entitled to state his ob- 
jectives before his fellow 
students in a speech to be given 
on Sept. 28 in the Student Union 
Ballroom. Speeches will begin 
at 7 pm and all students are

be on the second floor of the 
Student Union and will be open 
from 8 am until 7 pm. Run-off s 
for these offices will be held 
Oct. 6, if needed. 

The following statements 
have been submitted by various 

I, Chris Prestenback, am 
seeking the office of Freshman 
Class President. When choosing 
to run for this office, I con- 
sidered the duties and the many 
responsibilities it offers. If 
elected I will do my best to 
represent our Freshman Class 
in voicing opinions on your SGA. 
—Chris Prestenback 

When I attended the Fresh- 
man assembly at Prather 
Coliseum, it was brought to my 
attention to become involved 
here at NSU. Becoming 
President of the Freshman 
Class would be a major part of 
my involvement. —Ken Gorsha 
Fellow students, we, the 
members of the Freshmen 
Class of 1970 enter into a new 
era — we enter a university; we 
enter a new bond of friends; we 
enter the "Age of Aquarius." 
We leave the high school days 
behind, and now strive to use 
the experiences we had there to 
become responsible members 
of the student body of Nor- 
thwestern State University. 

I Lee Walker, wish to accept 
even more responsibility by 
serving you as President of the 
freshman class of NSU. By 
accepting this responsibility, I 
present myself to you with my 
past experiences and my hope 
for the future. 

At Tioga High School, I 
served as President of my 
Junior and Senior Classes. By 
this I acquired the true meaning 
of leadership and the respon- 
sibilities that go with it - 
responsibilities to myself, my 
school, and my fellow 

I also had other leadership 
roles in many clubs, com- 
mittees, and other functions 
vital to the students. 

I proved myself in high school 
with good, solid platforms. 
Now, I want to prove myself as 
a leader here at the university. 
If elected, I plan to strive for 
more school spirit among the 
freshmen class, and I, also, 
strive to bring the freshmen 
class closer together and to 
make it the best and hardest 
working freshmen class ever. In 
a few years, our present Student 
Government officers will be 
gone. Will there be anyone 
capable of replacing them? I 
accept the challenge of working 
as a leader, and working toward 
becoming a better leader. Do 
you? If you do, you will give me 
your vote. 

I asked the students of my 
high school for their support 
and confidence. Their answer 
was an affirmative vote in my 
ability to lead them. I now ask 
you the members of the Fresh- 
man Class for your vote. Will 

you place your confidence in 
me? —Lee Walker 

I, John Russ Daniel, am a 
candidate for the office of 
Freshman Class Vice- 
President. The role of the 
student at the university has 
become a major topic of 
discussion in our society. I feel 
that the students of Nor- 
thwestern should take a more 
active part in the affairs of their 
student government. Many 
students complain about what is 
wrong today; the way to help 
solve these problems is to work 
within the system of student 
government. I believe that as 
Freshman Vice-President I can 
help work toward solving 
problems confronting us as well 
as representing your viewpoints 
on the SGA. —John Russ Daniel 
I want to run for Vice- 
President of the Freshman 
Class because I love to work 
with people. I enjoy the 
problems of people. The first 
time I came to Northwestern, I 
met so many friendly people 
and different types. I would be 
proud to serve the freshman 
class. I would work my hardest 
to help everyone. These are only 
a very few reasons why I'm 
running for this office. I think 
the main reason is to serve the 
people. —Barry Laroux 

"Better meals at Iberville; 
free beers for all; less strict 
rules and regulations for girls 
on campus..." I was informed 
that this stand would assure 
election for any candidate. But 
to be at all realistic, I shall only 
promise that I honestly un- 
derstand the responsibility of 
the role involved in the office for 
which I am running. — 
Raymond D. Beach 

My name is Ronald E. Bales 
and I am running for the office 
of Vice-President of the Fresh- 
man Class. I understand fully 
the duties and responsibilities 
that go with the Vice- 

This year's Freshman Class 
is one of the largest in Nor- 
thwestern 's history and, if I am 
elected, I will do my best to 
make it the best. —Ronald E. 

"Well done is better than well 
said." Such is the case when one 
is running for an office. With my 
willingness to work and my past 
experiences, I, Marcia Nicosia, 
feel qualified as a candidate for 
the office of Vice-President. In 
high school I served as 
cheerleader, President of 
National Honor Society, 
Secretary of Tri-Hi-Y, a service 
club, Secretary of Future 
Business Leaders of America, 
and a member of the yearbook 
staff. I was a delegate to 
Pelican Girls' State and was 
chosen for the DAR Good 
Citizenship Award. I graduated 
from Lake Charles High School 
with a 3.81 average and was 
ranked 11 in a class of 323. 
Presently, I am attending this 
university on the W. T. Burton 
Scholarship. I am familiar with 
the duties of the Vice-President, 
and I pledge my utmost effort to 
the fulfillment of these duties. - 
-Marcia Nicosia 

I, Diane Gray, am seeking the 
office of secretary-treasurer of 
the freshman class and would 
greatly appreciate your support 
in my campaign. If elected I 
will uphold the constitution of 
the Student Government 
Association and represent the 
freshman class to the very best 
of my ability. I promise to show 
no partiality to any one group 
and will deal fairly in all my 
endeavors. —Diane Gray 

My name is Michael J. 
Struna, and I am running for 
Freshman SGA secretary- 
treasurer. I am a graduate of 
Leesville High, and I am now 
majoring in Social Science 
Education. —Michael J. Struna 
Men's Representative 
Bearing in mind that all 
student activities and functions 
are administered by the SGA, 
the freshman class should 
choose a representative that 
they feel would portray the

I The State Of The Union 


As many of you know, Big 
Name Entertainment is being 
handled by the Union Board this 
year. The name "Showcase 70" 
has been given to this phase of 
Union activity in order to 
present a more up to date 

Many questions relating to 
the process of booking various 
artists are constantly aired. For 
enlightment on this subject, the 
remainder of this column will 
explain the process of booking 
big name entertainers. 

First, a list of artists is 
acquired from printed 
literature, committee mem- 
bers, and organization 
representatives. Following 
these suggestions, various 
agents are contacted. During 
these discussions with the 
agents, artists or groups are 
presented in categories by price 
and availability for touring 
dates in this area. 

The list of performers, their 
price and availability, return to 
the union committee for 
evaluation and selection. After 
final selections have been 
made, a return call is made to 

the agent for contract 
negotiations. Various other 
details envolved in our per- 
formances include envolvement 
and approvement of our ad- 
ministrative officials, complete 
cooperation from the car- 
penters, sound and light 
technicians, campus security, 
furniture movers, service 
organizations, and of course, 
the "Showcase 70" committee. 

We are faced constantly with 
questions concerning the 
booking of super big name 
entertainers. Many times these 
particular groups or en- 
tertainers prefer not to show at 
a college for less than $25,000- 
$50,000. Because of this, it is 
impossible for a university or 
college of our size to book these. 

The activities fee that you 
recently paid at registration 
will entitle you to admittance to 
all concerts on your I.D. cards. 
If at any time there are 
questions concerning this 
committee's operation, please 
feel free to contact us. In the 
meantime we'll be constantly 
working for improved and more 
outstanding entertainment at

Litter Defaces NSU Campus 


fPOD^-J. TU/NK I'LL ££LL IT/' 

This is an opinion poll of 
students and faculty on campus 
on the problem of pollution. The 
question was: "Do you feel we 
have a pollution problem on 

"It hasn't reached propor- 
tions here yet, but it can hap- 
pen. I think kids would use litter 
baskets if they were here; it 
only takes a second to throw 
trash away. If 6,000 kids throw 
one piece of trash, that's 6,000 
pieces of paper around. It's 
everybody's problem." Michael 
Levine, West Hartford, Conn. 

"Pollution? Have you ever 
been behind the cafeteria?" 
David Randall, Vidalia, La. 

"I personally feel we don't 
have that bad of a pollution 
problem. Of course, I admit I 
don't know that much about the 
campus pollution situation." 
Kathy Lowe, Shreveport, La. 

"The garbage thrown around 
campus is a big problem. I've 
noticed that things have im- 
proved this year. I've heard 
they have hired people to pick it 
up." Dr. Hamilton, Biology 

"I don't think students on this 
campus take enough pride in 
their school, because especially 
on Sunday mornings, the 
campus looks like a garbage 
dump." Bill Gaines, Bossier 
City, La. 

"It isn't so much trash as it is 
beer cans. Like in the Rapides 
and Sabine parking lots." Gail 
Abshire, Crowley, La. 

"I don't think there is much of 
a problem. For as large a 
campus as Northwestern is, it is 
kept relatively clean." Becky 
Eastin, St. Martinville, La. 

"Take a swim in Chaplin's 
Lake; then go home and take a 
bath." Doug Andrus, Jennings, 


To put an end to circulating 
rumors, Dr. Charles 
Thomas, vice-president of 
academic affairs, is now 
recovering from an 

loperation which can be 

• termed a success. 

"To every problem there's a 
solution. To every solution 
there's a problem. To remedy 
the problem of pollution on this 
campus, you could have trash 
cans. However, trash cans are 
pollution. To remedy this 
problem decorate the trash 
cans. Make them appealing so 
they will be used." Pickett 
Walther, Destin, Fla.

The Ricky Brown Award 
(1969-70), for the most out- 
standing Freshman SGA 
member, was presented to 
wwmwwvwwwiwwwvim^ Harling by Dean Fulton. 

Litter Problem 

In this age of machines and progress, the 
whole world is becoming more and more con- 
cerned about the ever-increasing problem of 
pollution. Many of our larger cities are faced 
with the problem of smog; water pollution is 
becoming a major problem in many places 
threatening both man and wildlife; and litter 
pollutes our land causing eye-sores on highways, 
in parks, picnic_areas, and making otherwise 
beautiful places look bad, including our own 
NSU campus." 

Visitors to this campus, students, and faculty 
members have, I'm sure, noticed the litter 
problem which lurks on this campus. Paper of all 
descriptions (cups, cigarette packages, notebook 
paper, etc.), beer cans and bottles, bottles from 
other alcoholic beverages, and coke bottles are 
strewn here and there. Not only does this litter 
look bad, but broken bottles can cause many 
hazards in parking lots to tires and to people. 

I would also like to mention the fact that the 
student pays (or will pay) for the damage he 
does by putting litter on the campus, if the 
problem continues. Workers, hired by the 

§ mm AneiwA eaet> 

What Do You Think 

by Dorothy Jarzabek 

college, have to pick up litter that the student* 
leave when these workers should be doing otheij 
types of work -(which they were hired to do)] 
President Kilpatrick said that if the littei 
problem continues, room and board fees will 
have to be increased to pay for the hours that 
workers must spend clearing the campus oj 

I realize that there are few places on campus 
in which to place trash except inside the 
buildings. I therefore suggest that litter barrels 
be placed at strategic spots on campus because 
not many students will carry trash with then 
until they find a place to properly dispose of it 
This solution will not eliminate the problerr 
completely, but it may help in many respects 
In Praise 

Editorials are thought by many people to hav< 
the sole purpose of criticising people an( 
situations and editorials written praising dif 
ferent things are too few and far between. 

Women's dormitory rules amd regulations 
have often been a subject for criticism for manj 
sides. It is my opinion that the administration 
deserves praise for the open-mindedness thej 
have shown in relaxing women's dormitorj 

Curfew regulations have been relaxed greatly 
over the past year. Second semester freshmei 
may now stay out until 11 p.m. on week nights E* 
when, only a year ago, they had to be in by 9 
o'clock. Hours for upperclassmen have also been 
lengthened and this semester a no-hour dorm has, 
been set up on a trial basis. If this "no-hour" 
system works smoothly, it will possibly be ex- 
panded in the future. 

I realize thereis room for many improvements 
to be made in this area, but I also realize that 
things must be done gradually. Improvements 
have certainly been made since I was a fresh 
man. There is still a long way to go, but we have 
come a long way already.

TRASH-This picture, taken in front of the NSU 
Russell Library, shows litter lying around the steps of 
the building. Litter such as this causes eye-sores on 
the campus which detract from the beauty. 

CANS AND BOTTLES- Another shot taken in front o 
Varnado Hall pictures a car with beer cans an 
bottles strewn around it. Sights such as this one ar 
common at many places on the campus. There is a 
added hazard from broken bottles. 

LITTER-Unsightly litter dots this area in front of 
Varnado Hall. Many other places on campus are 
faced with the same problem and broken bottles are 
causing hazards in parking lots to tires and people.

Plans Being Made 
For Parking Lot 

Plans are being made to build 
a large parking lot on the site of 
the old Home Management 
Building, according to Lorand 
Lindsey, property manager and 
building program coordinator. 

Bids were accepted Tuesday 
for the parking lot, but Lindsey 
would not predict when work 
would begin on the project. 

When completed the parking 
lot should relieve parking in 
front of the Natatorium and 
nearby lots, including the 
overcrowded lots in front of 
Rapides and Sabine Halls, 
Lindsey said. 

Certain SGA offices, left open 
from last election, have been 
filled by appointment. Assigned 
to the position of Senior 
Secretary-Treasurer was Thea 
Rosamano, Ann Stout was 
appointed Senior Women's 
Representative, and Ed 
Bradley was approved to fill the 
position of Senior Justice on the

A Look at SGA 

Harling, a sophomore here at 
NSU, was presented with the 
Ricky Brown Award Monday 
night at a regular SGA meeting. 
This award is given each year in 
memory of Ricky Brown who 
was elected president of the 
freshman class in the fall of 1966 
and killed weeks after his 
election. The Ricky Brown 
award is presented each year to 
a freshman who best sets the 
pattern exemplified by Ricky 

Legislation recently approved 
by the NSU student body has 
enabled the Student Govern- 
ment Association to relegate the 
activities and entertainment 
functions of student life to the 
Student Union Governing 

That action was also in- 
strumental in allowing the SGA 
more time and energy 
necessary for progress in the 
areas of student rights, 
freedoms, and services. The 
Current Sauce has already 
reported some of the im- 
provements enacted by this 
administration of the SGA, but 
one project should be dealt with 
in this weekly column. 

At the SGA meeting last 
Monday night, a committee was 
appointed to research 
alterations and additions to the 
"Code of Conduct" section of 
the Demon Handbook. G. T. 
Spence, a graduate student in 
student personnel was also 
selected to assist the committee 
members in research. 

It is felt by this committee 
that a series of rational, well-

With Rush Activities Over, Greeks Are Looking Ahead 



The Psi Psi Chapter of Alpha 
Sigma Alpha held the summer 
workshop at the home of Carrie 
McClelland, our president. We 
were kept busy preparing to 
receive the rushees in Sep- 
tember by putting into action 
the plans we had made for rush. 

A national convention was 
held last June in Virginia 
Beach, Virginia. Carrie Mc- 
Clelland, Klydeanna Cobb, and 
Ann Gray went with the Beta 
Delta chapter as our 
representatives. We received 
an award for being with the 
largest group there and for our 
exhibit of the Natchitoches 
Association for Retarded 
Children's Thrift Shop. 

Sunday we pledged Karen 
Achtermeyer, Kathy Fester- 
van, Janet Heilbronner, and 
Cathy McCullough into our 
sisterhood. Karen and Cathy 
McCullough are social welfare 
majors. Kathy Festervan is a 
special education major, and 
Jan is a physical education 
major. Everyone here at the 
A.S.A. house is thrilled to have 
all of them as our sisters. 

After pledging, we attended 
church services together and 
went to Kathy Roan's home for 
a luncheon. Mrs. Roan, one of 
our alumns, had an excellent 
meal prepared for us, and we 
would like to thank her. 


. The Epsilon Beta Chapter of 
Delta Zeta completed Formal 
Rush on Sunday September 20, 
1970 when we pledged twenty-

year we chose to worship at the 
First United Methodist Church.

Delta Zeta would like to take 
this opportunity to thank all 
those who helped us with our 
Rush. A special thanks goes out 
to our alumni who served at all 
three parties. Our man -of -year, 
Charlie Hall, deserves a big 
hand for all the work he had 
done for us these past weeks. 

This past week DZ won the 
spirit stick at the pep rally for 
their week long efforts in 
promoting spirit for the 
Demons. Congratulations go out 
to Linda Wilson and Mary 
Douglas our spirit chairmen. 

DZ has already started the 
semester off with service to the 
community. Pat Tynes, 
president of the chapter, 
presented the Natchitoches 
Parish Hospital with fifty or- 
chid corsages for the patients to 

We would like to invite the other

The archery season for deer 
opens Oct. 3 so you don't really 
have much time to get ready. As 
all archers know there is much 
more preparation needed for 
the archery season than for the 
gun season. Not only does the 
archer have to prepare his 
equipment but he must prepare 
himself as well. If you plan to 
open the season and you have 
not started practicing you 
should start immediately if not 
sooner. For those who don't 
know, there is an archery range 
on campus which is located next 
to the tennis courts. 

A better form of practice that 
will benefit you in several ways 
is roaming. That is to walk 
through the woods and shoot at 
different targets. In this way 
you can scout the area you plan 
to hunt and will thus know 
where the deer are when the 
season opens. While you are in 
the woods practice your 
woodsmanship. Try to sneak 
around as quietly as possible 
and if you see an animal, try to 
stalk it. 

There are a number of places 
to hunt in this area for those 
willing to look. Of course there 
are several areas of the 
Kistachie National Forest, all of 
which are good. There is the 
Red Dirt Game Management 
Area about 20 miles south of 
Natchitoches. There is another 
area of the national forest 
between here and Winnfield. 
Also, there are forests owned by

As for his college success,

Aviation Program Expands Band To Attend 

National Meeting 

Northwestern State 
University's aviation science 
program, which was 
established just this fall, has 
been expanded because of wide- 
spread interest. 

More than 115 students 
registered for courses in the 
aviation science curriculum, 
making it necessary to offer 
night classes and increase the 
number of sections in some 

Raymond Carney, director of 
the program, said 20 of the 
students will actually be in- 
volved in flight instruction this 
fall, and the others will be in 
preliminary classroom 

Ninety-two students are 
enrolled in private ground 
school classes, making it 
necessary to provide three 
sections of the course. Fifteen 
are in commercial ground 
school five in flight instructor 
class and three in strument 

Carney said eight of the 
participants are coeds. Students 
from all academic areas may 
participate in the program, 
which is in the Department of 
Industrial Education and 
Technology in the School of 
Science and Technology. 

According to Carney, Dave 
Galloway has been appointed as 
instructor of avaition science 
and airport flight director for 
the program. Carney also said 
two Cessna 150's and a 
Cherokee 140 have been secured 
for use in the program.

The journalism curriculum 
now offers four specialized 
categories. The categories 
include news and editorial 
writing, advertising, public 
relations, and broadcast news. 

Northwestern now offers the 
most varied journalism 
curriculum in the state. 
Journalism associate professor 
Ezra Adams commented, 
"These changes give students a 
choice and better training in 

The new courses include: 
Advertising I, an introduction to 
advertising use of various 
media; Advertising II, the 
practical and legal aspects of 
advertising; Communications 
Law, legal aspects of 
publishing, broadcasting, and 
advertising; and Broadcast 
News, the planning and editing 
of news. 

Two courses have been re- 
organized within the 
curriculum to offer different

Alsop & Nader 

Five programs have been 
scheduled for the 1970-71 
Distinguished Lecture Series at 
Northwestern State University, 
according to Dr. Donald Hatley, 
assistant professor of English 
and series director. 

Highlighting the annual series 
will be appearances by con- 
sumer advocate Ralph Nader 
and noted "Newsweek" 
columnist Stewart Alsop. 

Hatley said two programs 
have been scheduled for the fall 
semester and three for the 
spring term. In addition to 
Nader and Alsop, two 

nationally-known educators are 
scheduled to speak. Nor- 
thwestern officials are 
negotiating with Sen. Birch 
Bayh of Indiana and Sen. Mark 
Hatfield of Oregon for the fifth 

The series opens on Nov. 18 
with a lecture by Dr. William G.

known lecturer and writer and 
has served as guest lecturer at 
Harvard University. 

Haag will be on the Nor- 
thwestern campus for three 
days to meet with several 
classes and conduct student and 
faculty seminars. His college- 
wide assembly climaxes the 
three-day visit. His appearance 
is sponsored by the depart- 
ments of social sciences and 
sociology at Northwestern. 

Nader, the highly-publicized, 
crusading advocate of 
automobile safety, anti- 
pollution measures and higher 

quality foods, will speak Dec. 
14. His subject is "En- 
vironmental Hazards-Man- 
Made, Man-Remedied."

LISL Approved 
By Student Gov't 

Candidates Chris Prestenback and Lee Walker left to right, congratulate one 
another on their appointment into the run-off elections for Freshman Class

Run-off elections will be held on Oct. 6 in the Student Union Building. 

Elections Require Run-offs 
For Major Freshman Offices 

By Vicki Prather 
The newly formed NSU 
chapter of the Louisiana In- 
tercollegiate State Legislature 
(LISL) was recently approved 
by members of the SGA for use 
on the Northwestern campus. It 
is now awaiting further con- 
sideration and approval by the 
organizations committee. If it is 
defeated there, the issue will 
become dead to further 

The LISL is patterned after 
the state government with a 
house of representatives and 
executive officers. In addition 
to the Northwestern chapter, 
some fifteen other chapters are 
located throughout college 
campuses in Louisiana con- 
tinuing some 70,000 students. 

The main purposes of this 
organization shall be (1) to 
determine student opinion on all 
vital issues concerning higher 

education and state government 
in Louisiana; (2) to co-ordinate 
student effort to achieve desired 
goals on such issues; (3) to 
promote intercollegiate com- 
munication among Louisiana 
students; (4) to provide an 
effective lobby organization for 
student opinion in the Louisiana 
State Legislature; (5) to con- 
duct voter registration drives in 
order to promote interest in 
State government; (6) to 
provide a continuing facility for 
the discrimination of student 
views; (7) to take all necessary 
and proper actions in order to 
encourage adoption of student 
views in Louisiana; (8) to 
sponser an annual legislature 
session in order for students to 
collectively recommend action 
on issues involving higher 
education and state government 
to the Louisiana State

By Niva Chavez 
Freshman votes brought forth 
three victories and two run-off 
positions in Tuesday's Fresh- 
man Class Elections. In a class 
of approximately 2000 students, 
only 372 freshmen voted. 

The offices of President and 
Vice-President will be forced 
into a run-off election. Chris 
Prestenback and Lee Walker 
will begin their campaigns for 
President in the run-off election 
scheduled for Oct. 6. Ronald E. 
Bales and John Russ Daniel will 
face each other in the run-offs 
for Vice-President. 

Prestenback released the 
following statement: "I would 
like to ask the Freshmen of NSU 
to help make me their voice in 
the SGA by selecting me as the 
candidate of their choice from 
Freshman Class President." 

When asked his opinion of the 
election participation he 
replied, "I don't think it is good 
at all. I think the freshmen 
should become more involved. 
Three hundred seventy-two out 
of 2,000 is ridiculous." 

Walker submitted this 
statement. "I am very thrilled 
with the election returns. I 
thank all those who showed 
their confidence in me by voting 
for me, but by next Tuesday, the 
run-off date, I hope I will be able 
to prove to even more students 
my willingness and ability to 
represent our Freshman Class. 
Please be sure to give me all of 
your support Tuesday." 

VON To Air 
October 21 

The Voice of Northwestern 
(VON) returns to radio this fall 
with the series opening 
program Oct. 21. 

VON is a 15-minute radio 
program presented by Nor- 
thwestern students over KNOC 
radio station in Natchitoches 
Air time is 6:45 p.m. every 

Each VON program is 
prepared, edited, and broad- 
casted by members of NSU 
radio broadcasting classes. Dr. 
Edna West, head of the speech 
and journalism department, is 
class instructor and program 

Featured during the opening 
broadcast will be highlights of 
the La. Tech-Northwestern 
State Fair game, according to 
Dr. West. 

Radio class members 
assisting with the VON program 
this fall are Jim Monroe, James 
Gibson, Bill Hooton, Mollie 
Johnson, all of Shreveport; 
Emily Brouillette, Cynthia 
Phillips, Joyce Jones, Nat- 
chitoches; Bill Baskerville, 
Minden; Hanan Ricks, Man- 
sfield; Thomasine Stevenson, 

Jim Freman, Wheaton, Md.; 
Robert Chance, Gretna; Lynn 
Gautreaux, Baton Rouge; Lynn 
Rollins, Alexandria; Ruthie 
Bennett, St. Francisville ; and 
Susan Ehlers, Lake Charles. 

Diane Gray emerged the 
victor in her contention for 
Secretary-Treasurer. She was 
elected into office by a margin 
of 166 votes over her opponent. 

Steve Jones, elected into 
Men's Representative office 
won by a margin of 47 votes 
over his closest competitor. The 

Women's Representative 
position will be assumed by 
Mary Lynn Williamson. 
Williamson ran as the only 
unopposed candidate on the 

SGA Appoints 
Chief Justice 

Charles Balliro, a senior 
majoring in government, has 
been appointed as the new chief 
justice of the student court 
according to SGA president 
David Precht. 

Balliro, the new chief justice, 
vows to make the student court 
reverent to the students. 

The original juries covered 
student grips and brought suits 
for any violation of the student 
handbook, constitution, parking 
tickets and expulsion of the 
student and faculty. 

"I would like to stress that the 
student court is not an ex- 
tension of the administration^" 
explained Balliro. 

"Students and adminstration 
will be judged in the same 

Two associated justices: Ed 
Bradly and Woody Shick were 
also appointed. 

To file suit a student can pick 
up a citation form from room 
222 (SGA) of the Student union. 

This is an avenue to air student 
grievances. It is up to the 
student to utilize their service. 

All justices are appointed for 
the student court and are not 
under the pressure of election. 

After receiving the election 
returns SGA President David 
Precht commented, "This is the 
poorest participation in any 
freshman election I have ob- 
served in my years at NSU. This 

includes both the number of 
candidates and the voters in- 
volved in this election. I sin- 
cerely hope that this is not an 
indication of another apathetic 
class. I suspect the turnout will 
be much larger next time." 

Reserved Seats 
Are Available 

All seats will be reserved for 
the productions presented this 
year by Northwestern State 
University Theatre, according 
to an announcement by Dr. 
Edna West, theatre director. 

Reservations are now being

fering, "The Miracle Worker," 
Oct. 12-15. Other season 
productions include "The Lion 
in Winter," Nov. 11-12; "The 
Odd Couple," March 15-18; and 
"Auntie Mame," April 22-23. 

Both season ticket holders 
and Northwestern students 
must reserve seats prior to each 

Reservations can be made 
Monday through Friday in the 
speech department office. All 

NSU theatre-goers, Dr. West 
states, should make their 
reservations as early as 

Season tickets, priced at $4 
are available in the NSU speech 
department. Northwestern 
students are admitted to all 
productions by I.D. cards.

Symphony Society 
Begins Fifth Season 

By Hershal Chapman 

The Natchitoches Nor- 
thwestern-Symphony Orchestra 
will open its fifth season in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium on Nov. 
20, under the new direction of 
Robert Smith. 

Two more concerts are 
scheduled at the Fine Arts 
Auditorium. "An Evening of 
Song" will be the theme of the 
concert of Feb. 12. Featured 
vocalists will perform songs 
from Broadway musicals, 
operettas, and arias. 

The music of George Ger- 
shwin is the format for the April 
30 concert. "Rhapsody in Blue, 
for Piano and Orchestra" will 
be featured. 

Numerous children's concerts 
are planned for Alexandria, 
Many, Winnfield, Natchitoches, 
and Coushatta. Dates are not 
available yet. 

Smith is the head of the 
Department of Music. He has 
been the Demon band director 
since 1965. 

A Shreveport native, Smith 
has a music education degree 
from Centenary, and a Master 
of Music Education degree from 
the Eastman School of Music. 

The orchestra's new concert 
master is Robert Price, first 
violinist, from Shreveport. 
Price is completing his doctor's 
degree at the Catholic 
University of America, and has 
a Master's degree from the 
University of Arkansas. He has 
played in the Air Force Or- 
chestra for eight years. 

"We encourage any string 
instrument players to attend 
our rehearsals," said Smith. 
"Musicians are needed in this 
category, whether they are NSU 
students or from the surroun- 
ding area." 

Rehearsals are held 
Tuesdays, 11 a.m. -12: 15 pjn. 
and Thursdays 7-9 p.m., in the 
Fine Arts Building. 

Other Society projects include 
string instruction classes in 
Natchitoches public schools and 
a scholarship program for NSU 
students. During the past four 
years, over $20,000 in 
scholarships have been 
awarded to Northwestern music 
majors, states Mrs. Sam 
Friedman, Symphony Society 

Legislature, as well as all other 
issues deemed vital by the 
students of the colleges and 
universities of the state of 

Two Senators and seven 
Representatives from Nor- 
thwestern, who will serve as 
elected officers, will meet in the 
LISL house of representatives 
and senate to propose and 
consider mock legislation. The 
goals of this legislature if it 
receives the approval of both 
houses and the governor will 
then be lobbied for in the 
Louisiana Legislature by 
members of the LISL executive 

LISL is potentially one of the 
greatest lobbying groups in the 

Based on previous sessions, 
legislation will deal with such 
topics as pollution, organized 
crime, and state and ad- 
ministration. It is through the 
local discussion that certain 
issues like these will be decided 
upon, and consequently be put 
into motion. 

The two year old student 
legislature was re-organized in 
session this past Spring into a 
lobby organization for college 
student opinion on current state 
and national issues. 

The Louisiana Intercollegiate 
State Legislature will meet in 
special session at the Capital 
House Hotel in Baton Rouge, 
Louisiana, for four days 
beginning November 5, ac- 
cording to LISL Governor Jim 
Boren, of Louisiana Tech. 

Although a formal mem- 
bership drive is scheduled to 
begin on November 1, any 
college student may join LISL 
by contacting members of the 
chapter on their campus. 

Those persons interested may 
contact Lynn Rollins, Greg 
O'Quinn, Robert Fleeger, Don 
Couvillion, or David Preeht. 

East Caspari is the only 
graduate men's dorm. It is now 
being renovated, completely 

The goal is to provide a 
facility geared to the needs of 
NSU graduate students who 
wish to live on campus. 

Only male graduate students 
will be allowed to reside in East 
Caspari. The eventual plans are 
to establish a small dorm 
library. The graduate dorm is in 
first semester operation.

The National Shakespeare 
Company will present

actors greater flexibility in 
their performance. 

Reyes and Soler Ballet 
Espanol will be featured March

eight performs to the rhythms 
of guitars alone. 

A possibility of a fifth per-

A Look at SGA 

In the opinions of several SGA 
members, the regular meetings 
of this governmental 
organization have seen some 
improvements over the past, 
notably the more consistent 
participation of non-members 
of SGA. 

For these few students who 
were not elected to office on 
SGA, their involvement in 
student government did not end 
with the casting of their votes. 
Instead, they have found 
themselves somewhat obligated 
to take a couple of hours out on 
Monday evenings to voice their 
opinions and to hear first hand 
the action being taken by their 

From the outset, SGA 
meetings have been open to any 
and all students who care to 
attend. In addition, a committee 
headed by sophomore women's 
representative Jeanne Hebert is 
formulating plans for holding 
SGA meetings in a larger place 
at regular intervals, thereby 
enabling more students to 
observe and take part in the 
inner functions of the Student 
Government Association. 

Only recently, I realized one 
of the reasons why SGA has 
drawn criticism during the 
past, and why it will probably 
always be criticized in the 


Students— I among them— 
have perpetually complained 
that SGA is a relatively do- 
nothing organization, a puppet 
of the administration. 

The largest portion of that 
statement is not actually true. 
SGA is a functioning 
organization. The problem is: 
those functions and im- 
provements which do take place 
within the organization are not 
of the type which are readily 
noticed by the student body. 

Changes in the Constitution, 
additions to rights and 
freedoms of students, enlarging 
and enhancing the powers of the 
student court system, more 
student voice in administrative 
policies are all signs of progress 
which uniortunately go un- 
noticed by the majority of the 
student body. And yet, they do 
comprise progress. 

This is not a plea forlauding 
for votes of confidence. Rather 
it is a fact which I have just 
recently discovered to be true. 

The credibility gap, however, 
is easily bridged. SGA is now 
taking steps to communicate on 
a much larger scale with the 
student body. All that is 
required now is for the student 
body to communicate on a much 
larger scale with the SGA.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

Like any other school officers, 
cheerleaders are elected to 
serve a purpose. In the past, 
this purpose was to promote 
school spirit and lead the 
student body in cheers at pep 
rallys and games. However, it 
now seems that the primary 
purpose of cheerleaders is to 

This change of purpose is not 
always the fault of the in- 
dividual cheerleader. The 
major cause of this change is 
the propoganda that they are 
fed at such institutions as the 
SMU Cheerleader Camp. The 
cheerleaders go in with good 
intentions yelling, "Go, Team ! " 
and come out confused yelling, 
"C-h-e-e-r-l-e-a-d-e-r-s ! 
Cheerleaders are the very 
best!" They are taught to do all 
sorts of lifts and acrobatics 
which are useless. Fortunately, 
it is very unlikely that a 
quarterback waiting for the 
snap will turn to watch the 
cheerleader doing swan dives 
on the side-lines. The players 
must hear the fans to know that 
they are supporting the team. 
However, such chants as "Go, 
Demons, go ! " are too out-dated 
for the modern cheerleader. 
Today's football player is told, 
"Don't get up-tight!" which is 
probably just what that Demon 
tackle had in mind for his 
relationship with the Bulldog 
who just received a pass. The 
new cheers, such as "Bang 
'em!" and "Do it! " are not very 
pertinent to the game of foot- 

Also, the rhythm patterns of 
the cheers are so slow and 
uneven that it is difficult for 
large groups to follow them. 
The cheerleaders are con- 
stantly asking the students to 
conform their cheering to that 
of the cheerleaders. This is the 
complete opposite of the way it 
should be. The cheerleaders, 
being servants of the student 
body, should conform their 
cheering to that of the students. 
That is, find cheers that are 
easier for the students to follow. 

So it is that the cheerleaders 
would do well to take another 
look at their responsibilities and 
try to function in the interest of 
the University.

Dear Editor: 

In the first issue of this year's 
Current Sauce you announced 
your decision not to write 
regular editorials or even to 
emphasize the editorial function 
of the paper at all. I wish you'd 
change your mind on that. It's 
true that one of the paper's 
essential functions is to report 
news, but it is perhaps even 
more important for a college 
newspaper to run editorials. In 
the case of The Current Sauce 
this is particularly true, 
because the news it contains is 
usually trivial and-or stale. By 
the time we read your account 
of the football team's latest 
triumph, we have already read 
about it in the Shreveport and 
Natchiioches papers and heard 

it on radio and TV. And the 
interest evoked by such articles 
as, for example, "Lab 
Established in Speech 
Department" and "Mascot 
Selected to Serve NSU" (both 
front-page entries in the Sep- 
tember 25 Current Sauce) is 
whelming at best. This is 
neither to say that NSU news is 
more boring than that of other 
schools nor that you shouldn't 
run such stories as these. But a 
college newspaper ought to do 

A college, not to say a 
university, ought to be a' 
marketplace of ideas. It ought 
to spark student interest in all 
sorts of subjects - especially 
those not taught in the class 
room. Politics, religion, 

morality, school policy - all 
sorts of subjects, in short - are 
of greatest interest to most 
students because their college 
experience is teaching them 
among other things, how to be 
concerned citizens and how to 

formulate and rely on their own 
judgments. Those who take full 
advantage of their college years 
are involved in such matters. 

As editor of the student 
newspaper, you have a unique 
opportunity to engage the minds 
of your fellows on many crucial 

matters, either by writing 
editorials of your own or, if you 
have nothing to say, by 
soliciting them from those who 
have. And you must realize that 
your worry over libeling or 
slandering someone is a 
transparent cop-out. So get on 
your soap box, Miss editor, and 
get something started. I think 
you'll find your fellow students 
eager to go for the ball, if you'll 
toss it up.

Assistant Professor

Open Letter 

Fellow Freshmen, 

At this time I would like to 
thank everyone who voted for 
me and everyone who helped 
me in my campaign. 

The run-off election will be 
held on Tuesday, October 6. I 
would like for all of those who 
helped me in the primary 
election to come out and vote for 
me again. 

Also, now that the selection 
for vice-president has been 
narrowed down, I would like for 
those who didn't vote for me to 
consider me even more closely. 
I know that I can do the best job. 
Yours for better government, 
John Russ Daniel

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie Brock ..... Editor 

Monday night at a regular SGA meeting the 
SGA gave its stamp of approval to the 
Organizations Board to allow the Louisiana 
Intercollegiate State Legislature (LISL) to 
extablish a chapter on the Northwestern cam- 

LISL is a mock state legislature which works 
with the SGA on college campuses. When it is 
found that a majority of students want a certain 
thing, LISL members formulate and pass a bill 
within their organization, take it to the state 
legislature and lobby to get something done. 

If operated for the benefit of the student and 
not to further political aims, LISL could be a 
great thing for NSU. It would give the students a 
place to express opinions and work, without 
demonstrations and riots, toward common goals. 

I recommend to the Organizations Board that 
they allow the Louisiana Intercollegiate State 
Lesislature (LISL) to establish itself on this 
campus. With the system of checks and balances 
that the SGA has added to the constitution, there 
would be no risk in giving the organization a 
chance. (Related story on page 1.) 

In Reply 

I am very sorry that you misinterpreted my 
editorial to mean that I did not intend to write 
regular editorials each week, for, as you can see, 
I have been doing just that and intend to do so in 
the future. I can see that there is room for im- 
provement on the editorial page and I intend to 
make improvements as time goes on. 

I realize that when you read news in the 
Current Sauce that you have no doubt read it in 
other papers. However I remind you that college 
papers report not only current events but also 
are recorders of history and practice for the 
students. They do not compete with other papers. 

I agree with your statement that college 
papers should do more and I would sincerely like 
to do more, but doing more does take time and I, 
like other students, must attend classes and 

Neither this editor nor the Current Sauce will 
avoid constructive controversy. Future issues of 
this paper will bear this out. 

I thank you for your concern and am open to 
suggestions and constructive criticisms. 

What Do You Think? 

by Dorothy Jarzabek 

This is an opinion poll of 
students and faculty on the 
"women's liberation movement. 
The question was: What is your 
opinion on the women's 
liberation movement?" 

"Really, I don't think it holds 
any values, because a woman's 
values were meant to have a 
man's care. He was meant to be 
the head of the household." 
LaNell Brosell, Zwolle, La. 

"I don't know. They have so 
many trends to it. They have 
something so far as equal 
employment opportunities, but 
then, on the other hand, they 
have so many other ob- 
jectives." Dr. LeBreton, 
History Dept. 

"It's a needed movement 
which is largely overdue in its 
development. But sex is still 
sex." Ronnie Wilkinson, Jen- 
nings, La. 

"It's another human reach for 
freedom. It does the same thing 
everything else that is human 
does. It makes its own 
restrictions and sets up new 
boundaries for prejudices. It's 
not that I disagree with all the 
movement's points, but 
everyone has to find their own 
freedom; not in a mass 
movement." Elain Goss, 
Atlanta, Ga. 

"I believe that if a worn! 
wants equal rights, she shou 
be willing to accept the san 
responsibilities as a man, su< 
as the draft. If she wants tl 
same working conditions, t 
same pay to be equal, what si 
is asking for is to use the san 
restroom." Ken Franci 
Shreveport, La. 

"I think the liberatu 
movement will completl 
destroy all romantic intention 
in men. It will cause men j 
think of women as equal an 
will destroy what little romand 
is left." Karen Achermeya 
Baton Rouge. 

"I would say if women wou| 
agree on what they really wan 
I would agree with it, but nj 
just these half-rights. If thj 
want to be equal, they still can 
be treated like they were on 
high pedestal." Michael Davi 
New Orleans, La. 

"I think it's an ove 
publicized force. If women waj 
equal rights, they should shaj 
the load with men, like tl 
armed services. They should « 
willing to be judges and a pa} 
of community government; 
just bridge and social gro 
But today, there should be mi 
home life." Lenny Lyl 
Shreveport, La.

SGA Resolution 

Whereas, The Student Government 
Association is concerned about the safty and 
well-being of the students of N.S.U., and 

Whereas, there exist several areas on campus 
where the lighting is poor, particularly in the 
quadrangle near Russell library, and on Greek 
Hill, and 

Whereas, it is the prescribed duty of the 
college to insure safety for students on campus 

Whereas, the college has also seen fit to 
provide more than ample lighting along 
Chaplain's Lake. 

Therefore, be it resolved that the ad- 
ministration of Northwestern State University 
seek to provide suitable lighting in said areas, 
and in those others where lighting is poor.

ruescby 111 tact > onlv one institution of 
higher learning, Northwestern, 
bothered to give Richard Ware 
Ja second look. And naturally 
when NSU offered a scholar- 
ship, Ware took it. 

It was a risk because even 
though Ware was twice an all- 
twin city selection and once the 
rea's leading rusher and 
corer, he stood only 5-9, 
weighed 180 pounds and ran 40 
yards in 5.1 seconds. 

As a freshman, Ware never 
carried the ball and was used 
only sparingly in the capacities 
f fullback and defensive 
fety. When the Demons take 
he field against Northeast 
morrow, Ware will be starting 
s 22nd consecutive college 
botball game as a fullback. 
Rugged Richard now stands 
10, weighs 195, and covers 40 
ards in 4.8 seconds. Add also to 
is list of accomplishments a 
fehare of a Gulf States Con- 
erence record, two school 
ecords, and a co-holder of 
Ihree more school marks. 
Last week against a bruising 
Southwest Okla. defense Ware 
an over, under, around, and 

]hrough people to the tune of 186 
ards for a new NSU record, 
fike Pool held the old record of 
47 against Southeastern last 
Ware also heard his number 
ailed 34 times to advance the 



pigskin against to Okies which 
tied Southeastern 's Ted 
Glaser's GSC record set in 1968 
against NSU. The 34 rushing 
attempts is of course a new 
school standard, breaking Vic 
Nyvall's 31 tries against Tenn. 
Tech in 1968. 

The senior fullback shares 
Demon records of most points 
scored in a game (18), most 
touchdowns in an outing (3) and 
most rushes in a season (127). 

Last season Ware lead the 
team with 564 yards on 127 
carries after compiling 336 
yards on 88 tries his sophomore 
year. After three contests in 
1970 Ware heads the backfield 
with 370 yards - an average of 
127 yards a game and almost 
five yards a crack. 

How has this athlete 
developed into the GSC's best 

"Just plain hard work and 
determination," backfield 
coach Johnny Emmons says. 
"He has tremendous deter- 
mination and a will to win that 
makes him a natural leader. He 
deserves everything he has 
earned in college." 

Ware, not only crunching 
runner, has earned the respect 
of defensive ends and 
linebackers around the league 
for his vicious blocking. Last 
year against Southeastern he 
was credited with putting 31 
ticklers on the ground. Several 
NSU running plays route Ware 
as the man to follow because of 
his blocking ability. 

"Richard is very coachable," 
head coach Glenn Gossett says, 
"because he is willing to pay the 
price of being a complete of- 
fensive back. He takes as much

GSC Opener On Top Sat. 

The Demons take their 3-0 
mark to Monroe Saturday night 
for the Gulf States Conference 
opener with the Northeast In- 
dians. NLU is taking a 1-0 
record into the expected thriller 
after taking Pensacola Navy for 
a 28-14 ride two weeks ago. 

The Demons will be faced 
with a double threat in way of 
two almost equally talented 
Indian quarterbacks. Mike 
Audirsch, a senior and last 
year's regular, started against 
Pensacola and completed 4 of 8 
passes for 63 yards. Allen 
Taylor, a sophomore, hit for 63 
yards also going on 4 of 7 from 
the play calling slot. 

Audirsch was the GSC's No. 3 
passer last year and set eight 
Northeast passing and total 
offense records. 

The amazing Joe Profit is 
back in full force with the Tribe 
this year. Profit has made the 

All-Conference team twice. He 
was the GSC rushing champion 
in 1968 and his 1968-69 rushing 
total are the highest two-year 
figure in league history. 

Last year the Indian ground 
gainer totaled 169 strips against 
Northwestern which is a school 
record. The rushing feats of 
Profit will be closely checked by 
the Demons tomorrow night. 

Since the series' inception in 
1952, Northwestern holds a 16-2 
advantage and has won the last 
nine meetings. But a majority 
of the games have hung in 
balance until the final whistle, 
and this confrontation will 
likely continue the trend. 

"We'll be facing possibly the 
best team Northeast has fielded 
since I've been at Nor- 
thwestern," said NSU coach 
Glenn Gossett. "I know we'll 
have to bleed for every inch we 
get. We always do. I'm ex- 

pecting another close, hard- 
fought game." 

This is Gossett's fourth year 
at Northwestern and he has 
previously seen his team whip 
the Indians by scores of 21-14 at 
Natchitoches, 7-3 at Monroe and 
28-10 last year at Natchitoches. 

Last fall's Northeast team 
was struck by a rash of injuries 
and won only one game all 
season, after posting 6-4 and 7-3 
records the previous two years. 
Still, the Indians only trailed 
Northwestern by a touchdown 
at half time, and it took the 
Demons' first sustained drive 
early in the fourth quarter to 
provide some breathing room. 

"With Profit and seven other 
offensive starters back," said 
Gossett, "Northeast's offense is 
much improved. They also have 
nine defensive starters back. 
Their defense is always real 

The Indians' wins over North- 
western came in the series 
inaugural, 20-13, when Gossett 
was a graduate assistant at 
Northeast, and in 1960, 7-6. 

The Demons rebounded to 
triumph 28-7 in 1961 and have 
won ever since. 

Gossett said freshman middle 
guard Kenny Trahant sustained 
a back injury against South- 
western and will miss the 
Northeast game. Trahant 
shared the team lead in tackles 
last weekend (nine). 

His absence means Alton 
Geisendorff move back from 
tackle to his normal middle 
guard position, with Sterling 
Baldwin starting at defensive 
tackle. Geisendorff played 
tackle against Southwestern in 
place of the unjured Craig 

No other personnel changes 
are anticipated by the Demons 
for the Indians.

pride in opening a hole for 
another back as he does running 
the ball." 

Ware does not possess blin- 
ding speed but gets to the line as 
quick as quick as anyone in the 
conference. Richard was not 
caught behind the line of 
scrimmage last campaign and 
has only lost four yards in the 
three seasons he has moved the 
ball for the Purple and White. 

Ware, who bubbles with 
enthusiasm, is very humble 
when it comes to talking about 

his football fortunes. "I'm just 
thankful to play football at 
Northwestern," he says. "We 
have a great group of players 
and coaches and I feel we can go 
undefeated if injuries or 
letdowns don't take their toll. 
We have the best offensive line 
in the GSC." 

The owner of a 3.0 average in 
business administration and a 
member of Blue Key, Ware was 
last year's winner of the Demon 
Award, Offensive Back Award, 
and the Scholastic Award. 

The 1970 hunting season gets 
into full swing tomorrow as 
squirrel, and rabbit hunters and 
archers invade the woods in full 
force. The present spell of cool 
weather should give many 
people the urge to hunt. 

The squirrel season runs from 
Oct. 3 to Jan. 10 and the bag 
limit is eight. You are allowed 
to have sixteen in possession. 
You will find bushytails in 
hardwood sections primarily, so 
it is often wise to walk along a 
creek or riverbed. If the woods 
are dry as is often the case at 
the first of the season a hunter 
walking is as noisy as a tank 
dragging chains. The brittle 
leaves on the ground make it 
impossible to move quietly. 
Many hunters still hunt while 
the woods are dry-that is they 
choose a likely looking spot and 
sit under a tree to wait for the 
squirrels to move about. 

The rabbit season is open' til 
Feb. 28. The daily limit is eight 
with 16 in possession. 

National Fame Gained 
Under Vega's Guidance 

A new law has been passed 
that is of interest to all 
Louisiana hunters. The new 
penalty for shooting a deer out 
of season or spotlighting them 
at night is a fine of not less than 
$350 AND not less than 30 days 
in jail! If you are squirrel 
hunting and see a deer you had 
better think several times 
before you take a shot at it. This 
should cut down on the night 
shooting that goes on in this 
section so frequently. 

The archery season opens 
tomorrow with either sex deer 
being legal. Deer hunters in 
this area have a special 9 day 
still hunting season before the 
regular season. This season 
runs from Nov. 7-15 and hunters 
are not allowed to use dogs.

Australia earns $84 a week.

North western's graceful 
Demons have won the NAIA 
Gymnastics Championship five 
straight years. And NSU's 
Armando Vega has coached the 
team for four years, where they 
have captured three straight 
titles in national meets. 

Coach Vega is one of the main 
reasons for the Demons suc- 
cessful showings at the NAIA 
and NCAA meets. Under his 
direction Richard Lloyd, John 
Ellas, and Paul Tickenoff have 
received Ail-American status 
for the parallel bars and All- 
around events. Vega was a 
renouned performer at Penn 
State where he was a three-time 
All-American . He won the 
NCAA University Division title 
for parallel bars in 1956, 1957, 
and 1959. He also won the All- 
around event in 1957 and 1959. 
During his peak, the 1959 
campaign, he also won the still 
rings championship. During his 
brilliant career as a collegian 
he participated in the 1956 and 
1960 Olympic Games. He also 
participated in the 1958 and 1962 
World Games in Moscow and 
Prague, respectively! After his 

career as a winning gymnast he 
was invited to be a judge at the 
1966 World Games and the 1968 
Olympic Games in Mexico City. 
He is presently the gymnastics 
coach and instructor at Nor- 

This October Vega will ac- 
company one of his prize pupils, 
Paul Tickenoff, to the World 
Games in Yugoslavia. Paul has 
much respect for his coach and 
says that he has learned many 
helpful tips from the former 
champion gymnast. Under 
Vega's direction Paul has 
received national rankings for 
his efforts in the gym. Paul is a 
junior from Los Angeles. He 
won 5 of 6 all-around titles last 
year and finished second to 
teammate John Ellas in the 
NCAA all-around competition. 

This year Paul has won the 
NCAA all-around title and was 
invited to the pre-world games 
in Chicago. He finished second 
in this meet to Japan's Makato 
Sakatmoto. This put him on the 
U.S. team for the Student World 
Games in Italy where he 
finished 14th out of a field of 60. 
Tickenoff scored second of the 
four U.S. competitors.

System May Eliminate 
[Coliseum Registration 



A new computer of the 
UNIVAC series is being in- 
ner e, (stalled on the second floor of the 
irt. Las Arts and Sciences Building. "In 
:e and itne future, says Mr. William e. 
ling acWalton, acting director of the 
/, Roxiiproject, "the computer may 
to worl eliminate registration in 
Prather Coliseum." 

Other future projects may 
link the computer cross country 
to a larger computer complex, 
aid archeologists in finding 
research material, and provide 
students with material for 
personal instruction and 

The computer is being housed 
on the second floor of the Arts 
and Sciences Building, but a 
communications terminal is 
also being installed in Roy Hall. 
The terminal will be a direct 
link to the computer that can be 
operated by telephone, with 
information returned on a 
cathode ray tube, much like 
closed circuit television. 

'A student's entire 


background information can be 
viewed on the screen, including 
his application or class cards, 
and transcript." says Mr. 
Walter Ledet, Registrar. 
Anyone interested in seeing the 
communications terminals is 
welcomed by Mr. Ledet to come 
see them next week when they 
are fully operational. 

The two communications 
terminals being installed will be 
used for speeding up the process 
of drops and adds, tabulation of 
student enrollment, the 
financial aid payroll, and other 
administrative uses. 

The library will soon have all 
books and magazines in the 
computer memory banks for 
more efficient record and 
research systems. 

A possible area of application 
may come in computer assisted 
instruction for students on an 
individual basis. The computer 
could give a student a summary 
of material to study and answer 
questions on. The computer will 
analyze the responses and 
return additional material to 

the student based on the 
computer's analysis of the 

Archeologists may benefit 
from the new computer, too. The 
computer will give access to 
current periodicals in the 
library that would provide 
necessary data in project 

Computer Science students 
will have access to the com- 
puter this semester on a limited 
basis. Students will not actually 
operate the computer, but it can

could afford to pay," said Mr.

agreement to benefit the ad- 
ministration and students."

A satellite information center 
for the nation-wide Reading 
Resources Network has been 
established in the new Teacher 
Education Center at NSU. 

Northwestern is one of only 20 
such satellite centers in the 
United States and is one of only 
two in the South. It is the only 
center in Louisiana. 

Dr. Mildred H. Bailey, 
professor of education and 
director of the NSU Reading 
Center, is coordinator of the 
information center. 

Plans are for the National 
Reading Clearinghouse, a joint 
project of the International 
Reading Association and In- 
diana University, to acquire, 
evaluate, abstract, store, 
retrieve and disseminate all of 
the information and research on 
reading since 1900. This in- 
formation will be stored at the 
information center at Indiana 

Indiana University will 
prepare copies of all of the 
research data and send the 
material to the 20 satellite 
centers. Dr. Bailey said the new 
center at Northwestern will add 
some 2,500 volumes to the 
University's present library 


Students, educators and 
reading specialists throughout 
the Southern part of the United 
States will utilize the material 
and facilities of the newly 
established satellite center at

facilities should contact Dr.

entitled "Louisiana's Vanishing 
1969 Sophomore Class: The 
Nicholls State Findings," is one 
of the articles featured in the 
current issue of Louisiana 
Studies, a publication of Nor- 
thwestern State University. 

Authors of the paper, which 
includes questionnaires and 
survey charts, are Louis 
Rodriguez, dean of the division 
of business administration, and 

Lawrence E. Scheuermann, 
instructor of data processing at 
Nicholls State. 

The article explains that 
college and university 
enrollment was up only 0.2 per 
cent in 1969 as compared to a 5.8 
increase in 1968. A major factor, 
according to the study, was the 
decline in the sophomore class

thirds of the freshmen in 
Louisiana returned as 
sophomores in 1968 while only 50 
per cent of the freshmen were 
enrolled as sophomores in 1969. 

Sagging economy played a 
major role in the enrollment 
drops, according to the study. 
Nineteen per cent indicated 
they dropped out of Nicholls for 
financial reasons. Figures used 
on dropouts were based on a 
study at Nicholls. 

Twenty-one per cent of 
students eligible to return left 
Nicholls to attend other colleges 
for various reasons, and 
scholastic failures kept 17 per 
cent of the freshman class from

were pouring out from 

"I can't believe it," squealed 
Queen Debbie, as she had just 
heard her name called. "I'm so 
excited, I really can't believe it, 
me, oh gosh." 

Almost on an impulse, she ran 
to the phone to call her parents 
and tell them the good news. As 
she stood there with Val Mar- 
million, who gave her moral 
support, she repeated over and 
over again, "I just don't believe 
it, me a queen, this is too good to 
be true." "I've finally won 

Then the long distance 
operator answered. 

Debbie said, "This is Debbie

This was just the beginning of 
what was to come of a very

When asked for a statement of 
her feelings at that moment, 
Frankie Gaspar, a junior from 
Morgan City exclaimed, "I 
can't hardly say anything. I'm 
pleased with the other girls who 
got nominated and won. I'm 
really honored." 

Diane Gray, a freshman 
general curriculum enrollee 
from Minden replied, "I don't 
know what to say, I can't 
believe it." 

When Lynn Killen, a junior 
Speech Pathology and Primary 
Education major from McDade, 
was notified of her honor, she 
exclaimed, "Oh, no. I didn't 
know about it yet. I'm very 
happy and very honored." 

Margaret Kovar, a senior 
Business major from Leesville 
said, "I'm so excited. I don't 
know what to say I'm so happy 
for Debbie, I can't stand it." 

A junior from Ashland, and a 
Home Economics major, 
Bonnie Martin, stated, "I don't 
know what to say except that 
I'm happy about being chosen, 
but am sorry about the other 
girls not being able to make it." 

Evie Norman, a sophomore 
Kindergarten and Primary 
Education major from Nat- 

chitoches said, "I'm very ex- 
cited. I'm glad the students 
thought of me to hold this

The first of many tributes to 
be paid to the new Queen, was 
one very surprising one which 
met her upon her arrival back 
to her room. 

As Debbie walked into her 
room, congratulatory signs 
were strewn everywhere, and 
hidden around were dozens of 
well wishers ready to surprise 

So, with shaving cream, 
toothpaste, and the works, the 
new Queen was officially 
greeted and unofficially 
crowned as the 1970 State Fair 

As a freshman last year, 
Debbie was one of 20 finalists 
for Lady of the Bracelet, and a 
nominee for State Fair court, 
She was also standards 
chairman of her pledge class in 
Sigma Kappa. She also ran for 
Sophomore Vice-President and 
A.W.S. Corresponding 

Debbie is currently a second 
semester sophomore with a 3.5 
average, majoring in Speech 
Education. She serves as 
Corresponding Secretary for 
Sigma Kappa, Recording 
Secretary of the Student Union 
governing board, and is also a 
Pi Kappa Phi Little Sister. 

She plans to graduate in a

Speech teacher at a high school

some area of speech therapy. 

For State Fair weekend, 
Debbie and her court will be 
involved in many activities pre- 
staging the game itself. 

There will be a reception and 
banquet, honoring the courts 
from Northwestern and Tech, a 
pep rally at 2:00 Saturday in the 
Shreve City Shopping Center, 
and finally the pre-game 
presentation of the Queen and 
her court. 

After the banquet, the two 
courts will be presented to 
Shreveport dignitaries at the 
Civic Center. Following this 
they will arrive in a motorcade 
to the pep rally. 

Frosh Officers Chosen 
In Runoff Elections 

CONGRATULATIONS-Newly elected Freshman Class President, Chris 
Prestenback congratulates vice-president John Daniel, following Freshman 
elections this week. 

By Niva Chavez 

Freshman run-off elections 
were brought to a conclusion 
Tuesday night with Chris 
Prestenback and John Russ 
Daniel emerging respectively 
as class president and vice- 

Less than 15 percent of the 
freshman class voted in the run- 
off election. A total of 287 votes 
were received. Prestenback 
won by a margin of 43 votes. 
Daniel, in a much closer race, 
won by a margin of 20 votes. 

"I want to thank everyone 
who voted for me and made it 
possible for me to be elected," 
said Prestenback. "But I do 
hope that the turnout for the 
election didn't show the com- 
plete involvement of the fresh- 
man class. I hope to see the 
freshman class rise, both in 
voice and activities." 

"I'd like to thank my voters for 
their support in this election," 
said Daniel. "I am going to try 
the best I can to represent the 
freshman class to make it the 
best class possible." 

"We will both be attempting 
to get the freshman class 
together and involved," com- 
mented Prestenback- on their 
future plans. ° " 

"We both feel that the turnout 
of 12-15 percent of the class was 
ridiculous," added Daniel. 

After further discussions with 
SGA president David Precht 
they plan to begin more definite 
projects involving their class 
and the SGA. 

Freshman election board 
chairman Bill Baskerville 
states, "I thought that ap- 
parently the best candidates 
won the elections. I feel they 
will be very beneficial to the 

SGA. I was disappointed at the 
student turn-out during the 
primary election, but even 
more so on the run-off turn out. I 
hope these freshmen will realize 
the importance of making a 
point of voting to elect can- 
didates they feel are best 
qualified in future elections. I'm 
anxious to start working with 
these new officers." 

The freshman class offices 
are now held by Chris 
Prestenback, President; John 
Russ Daniel, Vice-President; 
Diane Gray, Secretary- 
Treasurer; Steve Jones, Men's 
Representative; and Mary 
Lynn Williamson, Women's 

Miss Wallace will be escorted 
by David Precht, SGA 

Escorts for the court will 
include: Bobby Harling, State

ville, Vice-President of men; 
Johnny Hebert, SGA 
Parliamentarian; Ben Rushing, 
Senior President; Jim Mc- 
Dowell, Senior Vice-President; 
Ronnie Morrow, Senior Men's 
Representative; and Greg 
O'Quinn, Sophomore President. 

Thousands of Northwestern 
and Louisiana Tech students 
will participate Oct. 24 in a full 
day of parades, pep rallies and 
receptions leading up to the 
football game between the two 
universities at 7:30p.m. at State 
Fair Stadium. 

David Precht of Jennings, 
president of the Northwestern 
student body, will preside over 
NSU's State Fair events. 

Precht announced that Bobby 
Harling, sophomore pre-law 
major from Natchitoches, will

Name Band Presented 
First Entertainment 

Debbie Wallace 

By Cheryl Reese 

First big name entertainment 
of Showcase 70 was presented 
September 30 in Prather 
Coliseum featuring the Friends 
of Distinction and comedian 
Fred Smoot. 

The show opened with an 
extremely funny fellow, Fed 
Smoot. He gave several in- 
terpretations including both a 
birth control pill that worked 
and one that did not work. He 
ended his performance by 
taking requests from the 
audience, which was the hat- 
ching of an egg and another was 
an impersonation of President 
Nixon. Smoot is from Los 
Angeles and has been traveling 
with the group for a little over a 

After a short intermission, the 
contemporary harmonies, 
Friends of Distinction, ap- 
peared and showed their many 
musical talents. The Friends of 
Distinction are Harry Elston, 
Floyd Butler, Jessica Cleaves, 
and Barbara Jean Love. 

The group made its debut 
during the summer of 1968 at 
the Daisy, one of Hollywood's 
top discotheques. Since this 
time, they have toured the 
United States and appeared in 
The Factory, Hollywood's other 
"In" discotheque, as well as the 
Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles 
and Mr. D's in San Francisco. 

Harry Elston of Dallas, 
Texas, and Floyd Butler of San 
Diego, California, met when 
they both signed with the 
traveling outfit of soul singer 
Ray Charles. The nucleus of the 
Friends of Distinction was then 

Harry is the group's writer, 
and it was he who composed the 
lyrics to the High Masekela hit, 
"Grazin in the Grass." The song 
was the initial RCA single for 
the quartet and was included in 
their first album "Grazin" 
which was released last April. 

Jessica Cleaves of Beverly 
Hills, California, was brought 
into the newly forming Friends 
of Distinction by Butler whom 
she had previously worked with 
in Los Angeles. At the age of 
twenty, she is the group's 
youngest member. 

Barbara Love also comes 
from Beverly Hills, California. 
She joined the Friends about six 
months before the group's debut 
at the Daisy. 

When asked what he liked 
most about Louisiana, Butler 
replied, "I like the way you 
Southern ladies say Louisi- 
ana. " After the concert Elston 
stated: "The best thing that the 
city of Natchitoches has going 
for them is the Northwestern 
student body." 

The future plans of the 
•Friends of Distinction are to 
finish their road tour and to 
head back to San Francisco to 
record a new album which is 
soon to be released. 

October 14 (Wednesday) 
United States Department of 
Agriculture will interview for 
the positions of special agents 
and. auditors. 

October 16 (Friday) 

Pan American Life, Mr. Ed 
Goodwin, will interview for 
positions in sales and 

The Grad System services are 
available to seniors graduating 
in January. The Grad System is 
a i omputerized placement 
service which makes students' 
credentials available to 
prospective employers who will 
not be coming to the campus to 
conduct interviews. The Alumni 
and Placement of NSU is af- 
filiated with the Grad System 
through the College Placement 
Council. Interested students 
should go to the Alumni 
Placement office now to fill out 
the necessary form and mail it 

Free copies of the Alumni 
Placement Annual are also 
available to seniors in the 
Alumni and Placement office. 
The College Placement Annual 
lists the possible job op- 
portunities of companies that do 
not come to NSU. With access to 
the Annual, students are able to 
contact the companies of their 
choice for possible jobs. 

Mr. Haile stressed that it 
would be advantageous to at- 
tend as many interviews as 
possible now because the job 
market is slack. Some com- 
panies that had previously 
come to NSU seeking job ap- 
plicants are not hiring now and 
have therefore canceled out. 

"Prior to this year," stated 
Mr. Haile, "jobs were plentiful 
and there was no problem in 
securing a job; however this 
year it has come to be a

A new Computer Com- 
munications Terminal has been 
installed in Roy Hall. This 
terminal is a direct link to the 
UNIVAC computer which now 
operates on the second floor of 
the Arts and Sciences Building. 
The terminal has two consoles 
which store, record and feed- 
back information to the person 
soliciting information. 

The terminal which went into 
operation this week is aiding the 
Registrar's office in speeding 
up the process of dropping and 
adding classes. The drop record 
is made by simply recording the 
student's Social Security 
Number and putting a minus 
beside the course number as it 
is recorded. The computer will 
automatically drop the course 
from the students class records. 

The process of adding a class 
will consist of simply recording 
the information found on an add 
slip. The computer records the 
name, Social Security Number, 
class and course number, and 
the time and days the class is to 
be scheduled on the console. 
The add is then placed on the 
student's record by the com- 

The students "will be able to 
check the personal data the 
computer has on record for 
them." says Mr. Walter Ledet, 
Registrar. The students will 
view the data on the cathode ray 
tube which is much like closed 
circuit television. Any 

necessary changes in the 
records will be made in a 
matter of seconds by a simple 
process of correcting the data in 
the console. 

The student will be able to 
have a hard copy of the com- 
puter data made up by the 
computer. These hard copies 
will have much the same in- 
formation as the number three 
card each student is required to 
fill out at registration. This 
terminal holds all data per- 
taining to hours pursued, hours 
gained and grade point average 
of every student. 

Within a matter of seconds all 
available information which is 
requested will be supplied. A 
phone call from the computer 
room in the Arts and Sciences 
Building to the Registrar's 
office will provide any up to 
date information about a 
student to the caller. 

"We someday hope to have a 
console in each Dean's office 
which will have each students 
personal file on tape as it comes 
updated from this office." says 
Mr. Ledet. 

One of the consoles is on loan 
to Northwestern Registrar's 
office from the auditors office of 
the state to assist in the com- 
puting of drops and adds. The 
console will be returned to the 
auditors office after the final 
day to drop classes. 

This computer com- 
munications system is believed 
to be the only one of its kind in 
the state. The system is one of 
very few in the South. 

Polls Will Serve 
As Research Aid 

A new Student Services Sub- 
Committee has been formed 
according to Jack Hoffstadt, 
vice-president of the Student 
Government Association. 

Chairmen of the committee 
are Ken Baily and Ruby Bur- 
nette who are both student 
advisors. Faculty advisor on 
this committee is Dr. Millard 

The new committee, the 
Student Research Committee, 
will take written polls of the 
students. This committee is 
made up of David Navarre, 
Donnie Couvillion, Mary Lynn 
Williamson and Rhonda Mc- 

Every poll will contain 20-25 
questions distributed every 
month in the dorms. The 
committee expects to reach at 
least half of the campus each 
month. The purpose of the polls 
is to study student opinion so 
that the SGA and the Student 
Union can better . serve the 

Hoffstadt commented, "I 
hope that the students will be 
interested enough in what their 
fellow students think and will 
co-operate with the polls. Only 
through these polls will we be 
able to correctly give the 
student the government they 
want. I think these polls will be 
far reaching and will touch, 
hopefully, every factor of 
student life that is considered

SGA To Hold Meeting 
In Union Ballroom 

Student Government 
Association will hold one of its 
weekly meetings a month in the 
Student Union ballroom. These 
meetings will be held every 
second Monday of each month 
at 5:30. 

The purpose of having this 
type of SGA meeting is to en- 
courage more people to come 
and see how the SGA functions 
as a governing body. 

SGA, as the basic campus 
organization, is vested with the 
responsiblity of speaking for the 
entire Student body. The main 
goal of this convocation is to 
enable the student to see what 
the SGA can do for him. It is 
also to give the student a chance 
to voice his own opinions, ideas, 
gripes and criticisms. 

Monday. October 12 will be 
the first of these meetings. 
Parliamentary procedure will 
be explained for the benefit of 
the new freshman class of- 

Each student at NSU is in- 
vited and encouraged to attend.

The State Of The Union I A Look At SGA 


Our Student Union, in its 
fourth year of operation, has 
many valuable services 
available. The building itself 
was designed and equipped 
with numerous features to 
provide for a more enjoy- 
able student life for those at- 
tending Northwestern. 

As you enter the lower level of 
the split level structure, you 
find a number of facilities of 
value to you. There is a bowling 
alley for the pro, a television 
lounge area for your viewing 
pleasure, a bookstore for your 
shopping convenience, and a 
barber shop and beauty parlor 
for your better looks. 

An improvement project of 
the Union Board is that of 
beautifying the patio. The 
Demon Fountain and shrubbery 
were added to create an at- 
mosphere for your quieter 

Besides the beautiful 

by ValMarmillion 

Ballroom, spacious lobby, and 
bustling cafeteria, the second 
floor of the Union offers a 
variety of other ac- 
commodations. These include 
study rooms for cramming, a 
browsing room for reading your 
favorite magazines, a music 
listening room for jiving, and a 
host of offices for student and 
administrative personnel. 

The third floor of the Union, 
which is frequented by many 
students, contains offices for 
the Dean of Students, Men, and 
Women. The Director of 
Housing is also located on this 
level. Meeting rooms of various 
sizes are also located here. 

As is plain to see, the Union 
building is a vast complex of 
intermingling facilities. These 
facilities, combined with the 
operation of the Union 
Governing Board, all add to the 
Union '70 Program. Don't 
hesitate to make the Student 
Union your home ... it is!

SGA Organizes 

Student Services Committee, 
a newly formed organization 
under the SGA, will soon be in 
operation in which any student 
may discuss a problem con- 
cerning NSU. 

It is designed to answer, or 
discuss, any matter relevant to 
campus life. 

Headed by Greg O'Quinn, a 
.group of SGA members will 
meet every Tuesday, beginning 
September 29 from 7-9 pjn. in

will work with the cheerleaders 
to promote enthusiasm and 
spirit for all students at NSU. 

Smokey Says : 


To say that this is an age of 
dissent and campus unrest is 
more than an understatement. 
Yet, it is more a truism to say 
that Northwestern is on the 
verge of our own peculiar form 
of campus unrest. 

Instead, however, of seeking 
reform in government or an end 
to the war, those who lead the 
NSU radical movement want 
mainly to deprive coeds of their 
lingerie, at least ostensibly. 

Over the past two weeks, two 
attempts have been made at 
launching "panty raids" on the 
NSU campus, both of which 
were fortunately aborted. We 
say "fortunately" for a number 
of reasons, primarily because 
those raids that have taken 
place in the past few years have 
evolved into violent, destructive 
rampages marked by bottle- 
throwing, looting, and window- 

A case in point is recalled 
from the most recent significant 
raid on our campus during 
which more than $900 worth of 
property was destroyed or 
stolen, most of which belonged 
to the hapless coeds whose 
rooms were ransacked. 
Paradoxically, the loot taken 
that night consisted of far more 
valuable items than underwear. 

It would seem that students 
who wished to be respected as 
mature, responsible members 
of this university community 
would be able to find other, 
more acceptable ( and less 
antiquated) social outlets. It 
has already been established 
that this form of "unrest" is 
peculiar to Northwestern. 
Panty raids went out with the 
white socks and peddle-pushers 
of the 1950's. Students of today 
in the age of awareness are 
backsliding to a large extent 
when they rely upon practices 
which only bring derision upon 
the university and destruction 

to the campus. 

Regrettably, this essay 
sounds like it has emanated 
from the administration, rather 
than from a fellow student of 
yours. It has not. The point we 
are making is that panty raids 
in the modern context have 
become destructive, and 

In addition, the consequences 
are grave. Under recently 
enacted regulations passed by 
the Louisiana State Board of 
Education, a student may be 
"separated from the in- 
stitution" for no more than 
mingling or "egging on" those 
who are actually doing the 
raiding. Although this seems to 
be harshly extreme, those 
statements have empowered 
the "authorities" to react in a 
manner they deem necessary. 

I feel that I am concerned 
with this issue of future as well 
as past panty raids in that also 
during those previous incidents, 
the rights and welfare of NSU 
students were violated 
repeatedly, bringing about 
bitterness and ill will on the 
parts of those victimized 
students, their parents, and 
other interested parties as well. 

Considering the consequences 
to the participants of any such 
raid (including expulsion, and 
very possibly, im- 
prisonment), and the real and 
present danger such incidents 
present to the student body as a 
whole, a responsible, mature 
student would do well to refrain 
from taking part in actions such 
as that about which I am 

Peaceful, meaningful protest 
is one matter, but complete 
disregard of the rights of others 
can only damage the rights 
which we have been accorded - 
something which we have 
already seen resulting from 
previous disturbances. 

Forest fires can be prevent 
it's up to YOU!

Dear Editor, 

It has been my impression, by 
the actions of those students 
around me, that there isn't 
really anything good to seek out 
of life. 

True, everything is not all 
roses, but it is not all thorns 
either. What bothers me is the 
attitude that we take to do 
anything about it. Do we take 
the attitude that we are going to 
direct our attack on a system 
whether it be religious or 
political in a manner of ap- 
proaching anger for its 
falacies? Or, are we expecting 
of any institution to do all the 
work for us without putting 
anything into it? Do we ap- 
proach this institution in a way 
of concern to make the system 
better or by just trying to prove 
a point that the system is 
merely not doing its job. 

I'd like to see people serious 
about life, whether it be 
political or religious. 

Life is what you make it. 
What you put in it you'll get out 
of it. If you are expecting 
somebody else to fulfill your 
needs, you'll never get what you 
want done. You've got to be 
involved to get ahead. To help 
present conditions you have to 
lend a helping hand not a hand 
of resentment or destruction. 

Sure! you may never get 
everything you want, but if 
you're mature enough you'll 
know how to survive without 
wounding your pride. Being 
unselfish is a key to helping 

others, and by helping others 
you help yourself. Be involved. 

I would like to see the return 
of a "Free Speech Alley," - one 
that would have the support of 
the entire student body. I feel 
that the "Free Speech Alley" 
can fill in the communication 
gap among students. The only 
way it can be successful is if 
everyone approaches it in a 
manner as a means of ex- 
pressing one's opinions and by 
keeping an open mind. 

If taken seriously, it can 
become a good thing. It's 
success depends on the students 
of this campus and us alone. If 
we choose not to speak or make 
fun of those "so called freaks 
that do speak" it will have 
failed because of us and us 
alone. Let's give a "Free 
Speech Alley" a deserving 
fighting chance. 

Sincerely, Tommy Bogue 

(Editor's note - "The Free 
speech Alley," which is spon- 
sored by the SGA, is being 
started again. There is a related 
story on page one.) 

Seat Belts 
Failure to wear a car seat belt 
increases your risk of instant 
death or severe injury by at least 
100 per cent. It boosts the risk 
of suffering some less severe in- 
jury by at least 40 per cent. The 
figures come from a study of ac- 
tual accidents and their victims 
made by the Cornell Aeronautical 
Laboratory's Automotive Crash

What Do You Think 

By Dorothy Jarzabek 

This is an opinion poll of 
faculty and students concerning 
strict campus for girls as 
disciplinary action. The 
question was: What is your 
opinion on strict campus as a 
means of punishment for girls? 

"Strict campus? I think this 
rates as number one on NSU's 
most absurd list of rules 
governing women students. I 
think even the most con- 
servative person on this campus 
would agree that having to sign 
out to go to lunch or to the post 
office is carrying out the 
discipline policies of this 
university just a little too far. 
As for the effectiveness of strict 
campus-have you ever wit- 
nessed the opening of a tiger's 
cage. Think about it!" Chris 
Guidroz, New Roads, La. 

"Strict campus usually 
serves a definite function. Once 
a decision is made, the decision 
is if you want to stay in school 
and serve the strict campus. It 
is for more than ordinary 
misdemeanors. It is for ex- 
treme offenses." Dean Fulton, 
Dean of Students. 

"I think it's bad enough they 
have restrictions, especially for 
minor things. It's pretty severe, 
like for being out past the time 
you should be in." Norman 
Neel, Zwolle, La. 

"It is proven that in prisons 
when a prisoner is put in 
isolation, the desired effect is 
not produced. So why should 
you give students this same 
type of punishment? Strict 
campus puts a student in 
isolation, makes her bitter and 
depressed and this affects her 
studying. Aren't we in college to 
study?" Ginger Theils, 
Alexandria, La. 

"Well, I don't think it's very 
effective. It just fosters 
resentment. I think a better 
form of discipline could be 
found. When you're 19 or 20 and 
you have to be in your room at 
certain times, it's like mommy 
sending you to your room 
without supper." Jack Bailey, 
Shreveport, La. 

"I have a girlfriend in Sabine. 
They have to talk so softly. They 
have to be in at a certain time. I 
just think they're too strict on 
them." Henry Tullos, 
Alexandria, La. 

"Strict campus is not only 
absurd, it's stupid, too. Anyone 
who is at college is mature 
enough to know what they do 
and don't want to do. The 
system is not that effective now 
and it won't be in the future. 
Strict campus is like putting a 
person in prison for doing 
something that wasn't really 
that bad in the first place. What 
is so odd is that most of the girls 
are on strict campus for little 
things that aren't even their 
fault or for doing some things 
that they do at home. Then they 
must sign out to go to class, sign 
out to go to the post office, sign 
out to eat, and no visitors. This 
sounds more like a murderer on 
parole than an active, paying, 
and interested student in 
college." Yvonne King, 
Alexandria, La. 

Tryouts will be held for "The 
Lion In Winter" this week. 
George Stuart will be directing 
the production. The play calls 
for five men and two women. 
Tryouts will be held in the Fine 
Arts Green Room on Oct. 5th 
and 6th from 3 to 5 p. m. and 7 to 
9 p.m. 

Prior to each production a 
ticket booth will be operated in 
the Fine Arts Building in Room 
156. Students must show their 
ID card and state which night 
they wish to attend. Students 
will then be given a ticket and 
assigned to seats. 

"The Miracle Worker", a play 
presented by the NSU Theatre, 
will start Monday, Oct. 12, in the 
Fine Arts Little Theatre. 

News From A WS 

The first business meeting of 
the Associated Women Students 
Greater Council was held on 
October 5, 1970. Lynn Killen, 
President, welcomed the newly 
elected dormitory officers. 

Dormitory meetings 
following Greater Council 
Meetings and suggestion boxes 
in the dormitories were two new 
policies discussed. These 
policies are being introduced to 
encourage greater com- 
munication between the A.W.S 
representatives and the women 
students at N.S.U. 

It was reported that the Self- 
Regulated dormitory, East 
Varnado, is working smoothly 
and is very quiet. The A.W.S. 
and A. M.S. are working jointly 
to sponsor a program for Mom 
and Dad's Day on October 17. 
By using a predetermined 
number, as the parents 
register, one couple will be 
chosen as "Mom and Dad 1970" 
and will be honored with a silver 

tray at the football game that 

Dormitory competition will 
be held during the year. Points 
will be awarded for par- 
ticipation in pep rallies, in- 
tramural activities, grades, and 
bulletin boards. 

Guest speakers for the 
meeting were Sue Snell and 
Brenda Stanley who have been 
counselors at the Louisiana 
Lions Camp for Crippled 
Children. They discussed the 
importance of this camp. 

The A.W.S. officers would 
welcome any interest and 
suggestions that the women at 
N.S.U. have. It is through the 
A.W.S. that the Self-Regulated 
dormitory and the later hours 
have been obtained. So, if you 
want something done, come to 
us. We were elected by you, to 
serve you.

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie Brock -Editor 

Girls who live in dormitories here at Nor- 
thwestern are very familiar with the subject of 
minors and restrictions. 

Minors are given for such trivial things as 
making small mistakes on the "in and out" card. 
Minors are also given for being out of the room 
during room check; making excessive noise; 
using a radio, record player, or typewriter 
between room check and 6:00 a.m.; ironing after 
room check; failing to sign guests in upon their 
arrival; having a untidy room and wearing one's 
hair in rollers outside the residence hall. 

I realize that some punishment must be given 
those who continually disobey rules and minors 
seem to be a good way to bestow this punish- 
ment. But some of these trivial rules, in my 
opinion, do not deserve even a minor. For 
example, when a girl signs in or out on 4b* "in 
and out" card, if she makes the mistake of 
putting p.m. instead of a.m. on the card or 
happens to give the wrong date, I do not believe 
that a minor should be given. I think it would be 
fair to give one minor for three to five mistakes, 
but one minor for one mistake is a little too much 
for such a petty thing. 

When a girl accumulates three minors she 
automatically receives a restriction which 
means that she must be in her room by 7; 00 p.m. 
and remain there until 7; 00 a.m. During this time 
neither she nor her roommate may have visitors. 
If a girl gets three restrictions in one semester, 
she is called before the Judiciary Board 

Girls may also receive restrictions for being 
late more than five minutes; neglecting to "sign 
out" properly, failing to "sign in" properly; 
being improperly clad; failing to attend a house 
meeting; using improper language, or ironing in 
the room. Again, some of these rules, if broken, 
deserve punishment by restriction, but a 
restriction for failing to sign in and out properly 
or failing to attend a house meeting is a little too 
strict. Perhaps giving a minor or two would be 
quite sufficient. 

Minors and restrictions are also given for 
things which are not mentioned in the AWS 
Handbook. These penalities are usually given by 
house directors who are on the "warpath" for 
such petty things as going barefoot in the halls. 
Some house directors have been known to give 
restrictions to girls who returned to the dorm one 
minute late when it says in the Handbook that the 
student must be a least five minutes late. It has 
also been brought to my attention that some of 
the women's residence halls on campus have 
room check at specified periods three days a 
week while others have room check every day. 
Checking rooms for general tidiness three days 
out of a week would seem to be enough . 

Rules concerning minors and restrictions as 
well as other rules listed in the AWS Handbook 
need revising and updating. Northwestern has 
passed from a college to the status of university 
and I believe that we, as a part of this institution, 
should progress along with it. 

Family Income 

An Institute of Life Insurance 
analysis recently found that 20 
per cent of today's teenagers 
come from homes having incomes 
exceeding $15,000. In 10 years, 
that percentage will be 40 per 
cent, they predict.

Gamma Psi Chapter of Kappa 
Alpha Order welcomes three 
additional fall pledges. They

when Brothers Tommy Wright 
and Bruce Hobby traveled to 
Baton Rouge for a meeting with 
the State Board of education, 
concerning the land lease for 
the new house. 

Brother Paul Ferriss was 
chosen First Vice-President of 
the Interfraternity Council at 
the last meeting. Brother 
Ferriss will be in charge of rush

Many of the brothers traveled 
to Monroe for the Northeast

bership director, rush chair- 
man, Panhellenic delegate, and 
standards chairman. 


Last Sunday afternoon, the 
Alpha Zeta chapter members 
and pledges went on a picnic to 
Red Dirt. After everyone ate, 
entertainment was provided by 
the pledges, which proved to be 
quite enjoyable. All Tri Sigmas 
had a great time and found the 
picnic more than pleasurable. 

This coming Sunday, October 
11th, many Tri Sigmas are 
going to work at Melrose 
plantation during the annual 
historical tour here in Nat- 
chitoches. They will be selling 
cokes and other refreshments to 
various people taking the tour.

to sister Sheri Twomey on her 

Prior to the pledge meeting on 
Tuesday, October 6 a devotional 
was given with both actives and 
pledges in attendance. The 
theme of the program was 
"Life's Highway". It was 
presented by active chaplain, 
Melinda Voorhies. 

The pledge meeting was 
opened with pledge president, 
Katy Van Asselberg presiding. 
Patty Hebert was announced as 
Pledge of the Week. Pledge of 
the Week was selected by the 
actives based on cooperation, 
merits, and hard work of the 
previous week. 

On Wednesday, October 7 the 
actives of Sigma Kappa held 
their weekly meeting. The 
sisters pledged an annual 
contribution and began making 
plans for a Christmas project 
for the main Seacoast Mission. 
It is one of Sigma Kappa's 
national philanthropies which 
helps the needy families along 
the coast of Maine. 


The regular meeting of Ep- 
silon Beta was held on October 
6. During this meeting a report

Richard Galloway on a school 
service project. 

Lue Wiggins was appointed 
parliamentarian and Sissy 
Hubley will assist Pam Hooper 
as House Manager. 

Tuesday night the pledges 
were greeted by a massive pile 
of twine. Each pledge found her 
name at one end of the string 
and after untangling their 
string she finlly learned who her 
big sis was. At this time the 
pledges were presented their 
drop letters. 

DZ has six serving on the 
AWS Greater Council this year. 
Those serving on the council are 
Debbie Wing, Sissy Hubley, Lue

members of the AWS JD Board. 

Congratulations go out to 
Bonnie Martin on her election to

Further changes are being 
considered. Students who 
sometimes get soggy toast when 
they eat a late breakfast will 
soon find toasters within the 
dining area at their disposal. A 
means for keeping rolls warm 
and dry are also in the process. 

The Student Food Service 
Committee plans future 
specialty nights with the 
cafeteria serving food chosen 
for the evening along with 
different types of en- 
tertainment. "The cafeteria 
management has been very co- 
operative with the SFSC in 
planning these events," said 

The food you are served at 
every meal requires the ser- 
vices of 156 full and part time 
employees. Their various jobs 
are salads, bakery production 
in the kitchen, serving per- 
sonnel, dining room ladies, 
monitors, dish washers, pots 
and pans, janitors, line 
checkers, and line runners. 
Almost 3,000 students must be 
fed in both dining halls and 
special service is provided for

The first wave of workers 
arrive at 4:30 a.m. to prepare 
breakfast. At 6:30 more 
workers arrive to begin 
preparation for lunch. If the

chicken, preparation must 
begin at 5:30 so that at least 500 
chickens can be quartered and 

Cleaning up after the dining 
hall closes is a big job. A special 
clean-up man comes at 7:00 
every evening and usually 
leaves at 3:00 the next morning.

MISS NELDA ROBINSON of Heflin was crowned the new National High School 
Rodeo Queen in West Fargo, North Dakota on August 3, 1970. 

Miss Robinson, age 17, was chosen as the 1970 Louisiana High School Cham- 
pionship Rodeo Queen in June of this year in Sulphur. The blonde haired, brown 
eyed beauty was also chosen as Miss Congeniality in this state contest. This was 
quite an honor, as never before had a contestant won both of these titles at the 
same time. 

Miss Robinson competes in barrel, pole bending, breakaway roping, and 
bareback riding. She will represent the state of Louisiana and also the National 
High School Rodeo Association in many functions during the coming year. 

She is the daughter of Mr . and Mrs . Howard Robinson of Heflin .

controlled, it can eventually 
destroy all other interests and 
activities— family business, 
social, or community," writes 
Dr. R. Gordon Bell in the 
preface of his new book 
"Escape from Addiction". 

After 24 years of experience 
working wigh problem of ad- 
diction, Dr. Bell is optimistic. 
■€fe states; "By calling this book 
"Escape from Addiction," I am 
trying to emphasize that there 
is hope for recovery and that the 
days of stigmaladen labels for 
chemical dependence! of 
whatever kind are being left 

The author is the president of 
the Donwood Institute which 
operates a 50-bed hospital for 
addiction treatment, education, 
and research in Toronto, 
Canada. Much of the material in 
this authoritative, 224-page 
book is based on the com- 

prenensive program of 
rehabilitation and treatment 
presently used by the institute. 

This provocative study 
provides full coverage on the 
effects of alcohol, as well as a 
review of the effects of nar- 
cotics and other addicting 
drugs. It investigates the 
clinical and social problems of 
addiction, giving equal at- 
tention to the physical, mental, 
and social components. 
"Escape from Addiction" will 
prove a valuable, thought- 
provoking aid for anyone 
concerned with the health and 
social questions resulting from 
the excessive or compulsive use 
of alcohol, tobacco, food, and a 

wide assortment of depressant 
and stimulant drugs. 

Divided into 16 chapters 
which are grouped into two 
major parts, this useful work 
first examines the various 
facets of addiction and follows 
with suggested methods of 
escape from such bondage. The 
first part,, "Addiction," 
presents an orientation for the 
reader to the clinical and social 
problems arising from complex 
addiction disorders. The second 
part, "Escape," deals with the 
treatment program presently 

used by the Donwood Institute. 
A three-phase program, this 

treatment extends over 
a minimum period of one year. 
Following a detailed discussion 
of each of the three phases, the 
author makes suggestions 
concerning the organization of 
community resources for more 
complete and successful 
treatment programs.

"Give up the day of wrong

those who will by tongue or force deceive you. 

laugh, sing, meditate and be of joy. 

Transcend, give spirit sway upon the earth." 

Humble was the splendor of the sun that set

Moving Toward 
Career Records 

The CURRENT SAUCE Friday, October 9, 1970 Page 1 

With 2194 yards gained in 316 
carries in a three-year career 
Charles Tolar stands virtually 
unchallenged as Northwestern 
State University's all-time 
rushing leader. 

But another fullback, senior 
Richard Ware of West Monroe, 
is making a run that should 
bring him nearer Tolar's total 
than any previous NSU per- 
former, and within range of a 
couple of Tolar's school one 
season records. 

After four games this year, 
Ware has rushed for 465 yards 
on 103 carries. If the pace can be 
continued or even approached 
in the Demons' final six games, 

Ware would top the 818 yards 
Tolar amassed in 1957. 

Ware has scored five touch- 
downs this season, which puts 
him in position to challenge the 
mark of 12 set by Tolar in 1958 
when he also ran for 713 yards 
and earned All -America honors. 

One of Ware's TDs came last 
Saturday against Northeast 
Louisiana when he rushed for 94 
yards, upping his career total to 
1365 yards, third highest in NSU 

Immediately ahead of him is 
James McNew, a quarterback 
who ran for 1536 yards in 315 
carries in 1953-56. At the 
beginning of this season, Ware 

showed 900 yards on 215 carries 
and ranked sixth among all- 
time Northwestern ground 
gainers. But in order he has 
passed Ralph Conrad (1958-60) 
and Claude Patrick (1962-64), 
both with 1130 yards, and Vic 
Nyvall (1967-69), with 1296 

The Northeast game put Ware 
past Nyvall and also moved 
senior split end Al Phillips into 
third place among the Demons' 
all-time pass receivers. Phillips 
caught four passes against the 
Indians, giving him 65 in his 
career, Billy Booth caught 62 
from 1956 to 1959. Phillips and 
Booth are now tied for third in 

all-time total yardage with 1242 
yards. Phillips is NSU's all-time 
reception scoring leader (17 

Latest statistics show senior 
quarterback Mike Pool with 461 
yards total offense (222 yards 
rushing and 239 yards passing). 
He had his best passing night of 
the year against Northeast, 
seven completions for 104 
yards. He now has 1990 yards 
total offense in his career, fifth 
highest of all-time at NSU. 

Senior halfback Tommy 
Wallis ran for 77 yards against 
Northeast, raising his career 
total to 1068 yards on 221 at-

In Varsity Action 

Ten Freshmen Log Time 

This year's group of freshmen 
at Northwestern State is living 
up to its advance billing as 
possibly the most talented 
group head coach Glenn Gossett 
and his staff have recruited. 

Ten of the newcomers are 
seeing game action on the 
varsity and have made ap- 
preciable contributions to the 
Demons' 3-1 start, according to 

Last year only five incoming 
frosh performed on a 7-2 Nor- 
thwestern team. 

"We've got some quality 
freshmen who are providing us 
the depth we need," said 
Gossett, who is serving his 
fourth year as the Demons' 
head coach. "A lot 
. have potential to become solid 
college players. They give us 
the foundation for continuing a 
winning program in the future." 

The freshmen logging playing 
time are split end Skipper 
Morgan of Shreveport 
Woodlawn, tight ends Ray 
Bridges of Harvey West Jef- 
ferson and James White of 
Shreveport Eden Gardens, 
guard Roy Mouledous of New 
Orleans Holy Cross, Harold 
Clay of Thibodaux and Ronnie 
Woodruff of Baton Rouge 
Istrouma, middle guard Kenny 
Trahant of Holy Cross and 
Linebacker Don McAllen of 

Morgan, a high school all- 
stater with good speed, alter- 
nates on the first unit with 
senior Al Phillips, a former all 
Gulf States Conference selec- 
tion. Gossett uses his split ends 
to shuttle plays into the game. 

Bridges, a solid 6-1, 198- 

pounder converted from 
defensive end, divides playing 
time with junior squadman 
Paul Zoller as Gossett attempts 
to develop both into competent 
performers. White, a converted 
linebacker is being brought 
along more slowly. 

When heat prostration forced 
the starting guards out, 
Mouledous performed in the 
offensive drive that earned the 
Demons a 9-7 nod over Stephen 
F. Austin three weeks ago. 

Spitale is the second halfback 

alternate and saw enough duty 
in an opening 42-21 win over 
Florence State to gain 19 yards 
on three carries. He's another 
high school all-stater. 

Chapman, (6-3, 220;, Clay (6- 
1, 215) and Woodruff (6-1, 195) 
alternate behind senior Walter 
Edler, junior Craig Tripp and 
sophomore Sterling Balwin. 
Chapman played in the high 
school- all-star game last 

Due to an injury to Tripp and 
Alton Geisendorff 's switch to 

tackle, Trahant started two 
weeks ago in a 22-14 win over 
Southwestern Oklahoma and 
tied for the team lead in tackles 
(nine). He injured his back and 
missed last Saturday's contest 
with Northeast Louisiana. But 
he's now recovered. 

McAllen, another high school 
all-stater, presently ranks as 
the team's No. 3 linebacker. A 
temporary injury advanced him 
into the lineup early against 
Northeast and he produced a 
big defensive play on Joe Profit.

Squirrel Season 

Squirrel hunters didn't have 
as much success because of 
adverse conditions in the woods. 
The leaves are still on the trees 
making it hard to spot squirrels 
and the woods are dry, making 
it hard to walk quietly. 

With very few exceptions 
most everyone I asked told 
me," Oh, I got a couple but I 
think I'll wait till it cools off 
before going back." There was 
no one place that was par- 
ticularly better than any other. 

I talked to one person who 
was shot at on opening day. 
Please be careful of what you 
are shooting. The "I thought he 
was a deer" or "I just saw 
something move" excuses are 
used all to often and are so easy 
to prevent. 

Demon Divers 

The Demon Divers, a club for 
and of skin and scuba divers, is 
reforming and all divers are 
invited to join. The club existed 
here a couple of years ago but 
seemed to dissolve 
mysteriously. There are many 
divers on campus and this will 
give them a chance to get 
together and exchange ideas. 
Some of the activities planned 
are: trips to Toledo Bend 
(which is pretty good for 
spearfishing), charter boat 
trips in the Gulf, and possibly a 
trip to Florida. 

If there are enough people 
interested, the club will check 
on getting a certified scuba 
instructor to teach. Those in- 
terested in joining the club 
please call 352-9362 

Northwestern's athletic 
department has four new 
graduate assistants in football, 
track, and basketball. This puts 
NSU's athletic staff to the 
largest in the conference. 
Newcomers to NSU are Billy 
Jack Talton, Lester Latino, 
Jerry Dyes, and Terry 

Billy Jack Talton 

Talton has just joined the 
Demon staff as a graduate 
assistant. He assists coach 
Doherty with the defensive line 
duties. The 30-year old 
Louisiana Tech graduate, was 
an All-GSC offensive guard his 
senior season at Tech. After 
receiving his bachelors degree 
in 1962, he was the line coach at 
Bastrop High School for five 
years. In 1967 he moved to 
Shreveport to lead the defensive 
line for the rookie school 
Captain Shreve. Talton played 
prep football at Minden. In 
1956 the Crimson Tide won the 
state Class AA championship, 
j George Doherty was Billy's 
a coach.

By Hershal Chapman 

Surprisingly enough the 
Friends of Distinction's concert 
was pretty good. Surprisingly? 
Yeah, because if one went to 
hear their records performed, 
one went prepared to be bored. 

Their records are overly 
slick, and each one sounds too 
much like the last. Generally, 
the act was polished and tight. 
They did manage to generate 
some soul at times though. 

First their opener, "Light My 
Fire," was ill-chosen. It is 
simply not their kind of music. 
It is hardly a bouncy and happy 

Their second number was 
better, "We Got A Good Thing 
Going". Floyd and Harry's 
walk into the audience was nice 
and helped set the atmosphere. 

Now comes the best part. 
Jessica and Charlene. These 
two Friends have beautiful 
voices and it is good to see they 
are not wasted. 

Jessica, who soloed on "Lady 
May," makes one sit up and 
take notice, and then just lay 
back and let it ooze all over you. 
Charlene's "Crazy Mary" had 
nearly the same effect (Jessica 
was a personal favorite). 

The arrangements for both 
songs were perfect vehicles for 
the girls to show what they 
could do. Both girls had terrific 
range and control. A lot of 
jumping from high to low im- 
provisation was especially 

The new record, "Time Waits 

For No One," was best 
forgotten. The same for 
"Feelin' Alright". The latter is 
a fine song, but not meant to be 
performed so cut and dry. 

The girls at the concert sure 
liked Floyd. When he eased into 
"I Just Don't Know What To Do 
With Myself," it was evident 
they liked that sort of thing. 
Thinking about it now, he did 
sound a lot like Isaac Hayes. No 
wonder they liked it. 

One of the brightest spots of 
the evening was the band's 
musical intermission. The song 
went unnamed, (Wes Mon- 
tgomery?), but it was enough to 
whet your appetite for a lot 
more. It was a fine jazz number 
with interspersed solos by each 
member of the quintet. 

The band consisted of - 
drums, congas, guitar, electric 
bass, and piano. The bass 
player was especially good. 

Fred Smoot was very funny. 
Everyone seemed to think so. 
He proved that comedy can be 
funny without necessarily 
tackling the big and con- 
troversial issues of the times. 
His animations were well timed 
and performed. Obviously he 
has spent a lot of time working 
up a funny act. 

It sure would be good to hear 
Jessica and Charlene and that 
band again. Frank and Harry 
were fine and kept the show 
rolling, but the band and the 
girls were the musical

System Is Established 
For Dormitory Counseling 

Fred Bosarge, director of 
housing and dean of men at 
Northwestern State University, 
has announced the establish- 
ment of a dormitory counseling 
system for men and the 
beginning of a new dormitory 
for graduate students. 

Northwestern has become one 
of the first universities in the 
South to utilize graduate 
students as dormitory coun- 
selors for men. 

Bosarge said the purpose of 
the new counseling program is 
to counsel with students having 
academic difficulty, to work 
with and develop a student 
resident dormitory government 
group in each dormitory, to 
develop programs and 
recreational facilities ap- 
propriate to each dormitory's 
physical plant and residents' 
interests and to provide 
counseling to assist in ad- 
justment to campus life and 
personal problems. 

Four graduate students have 
been assigned as counselors for 

the fall semester. They are 
Larry Keys of Alexandria, 
Prudhomme Hall; Steve Miller 
of Shreveport, Caspari and 
South Halls; Malcom Hodnett of 
Minden, Rapides Hall, and Tim 
Baker of Gueydan, Bossier and 
Natchitoches Halls. 

Bosarge said all of the 
counselors are majoring in 
student personnel services and 
will receive training in coun- 
seling and working with college- 
age students. 

East Caspari Hall, located in 
the center of the Northwestern 
campus, has become a 
residence hall for male 
graduate students. Bosarge 
said the graduate dormitory 
was established at the begin- 
ning of the fall semester. 

Workmen have begun 
renovating the dormitory and 
installing an air-conditioning 
system. Most of the renovation 

work should be completed by 
the beginning of the spring 

Plans are also under way for 
the establishment of a small 
library in the dormitory and for 
recreational facilities in and 
the graduate residence

During a conversation about 
LISL the temporary president, 
Greg O'Quin made the following

The meeting which Greg 
referred to will be held this 
coming Tuesday night at 7 p.m. 
in Room 320 of the Student

Fair Draws Campus Crowd 




by Charles Herring 

The Natchitoches Parish 
Fair, its crowds swelled by 
I Northwestern students trying to 
forget their studies and troubles 
|in the fair's kaleidoscope of 
sights and sounds, came to a 
(close last Saturday night after 
: an eight day run. 

t»lrt»rifl ^ spite of rains 311(1 a sudden 
eKe,lu cold front, the fair drew the 
(largest crowds in its history, 
if air officials said. 

For one week a cow pasture 
iwas transformed into a small 
fcity-a miracle peculiar to fairs 
and carnivals. 

j For the average student, 
Pnnnlo P rovided he was not too 
UUUjJIC sophisticated, the fair offered 
evening of fun. The rides 
ere few, the concession stands 
6nd game booths were many, 
^nd the prices were hig h. 


Adventurous students with 
cast iron stomachs could ride 
the bullet. For the less ad- 
venturous there were the 
merry-go-rounds and ferris 
wheels, and for the aspiring 
cowboy, pony rides. 

Many of the more gullible 
students could be found around 
the game booths where a week's 
salary could be spent in five 

Students could also attend the 
rodeo, a not too horrifying 
horror house, or just walk about 
the fair grounds looking at the 
large collection of 4-H blue 
ribbon winning exhibits. 

Most students enjoyed the 
fair, but as one student said, 
"The fair was fair, but the most 
exciting part came at the end 
when you had to spend two 
hours searching for a way out of

D To Be Used 
s Meal Ticket 

Meal tickets will not be used 
in the cafeteria after the next 
Pay period. Students will use 
student identification cards 
instead of meal tickets. 

The decision was made by the 
cafeteria management, in 
conjunction with the SGA Food 
Service Committee. Each 
student card will be stamped 
with a certain color and number 
2« designate which cafeteria 
should be used and whether 
cafeteria fees have been paid. 

The stamping of student I.D. 
cards will follow the same 
>roeess of acquiring meal 
ickets, according to Greg 
J'Quinn, chairman of the Food 
I ^rvices Committee. Students 
paying by installments will 
receive the stamp in the 
cashier's office in Buy Hall, 
ytner students who have paid in 
will receive the stamps in 
fne dorms. 

' Student I.D. cards will not be 
flinched. O'Quinn stated that 
fj e Purpose of the new system is 
f° limit the number of free 
fneals. Last week the cafeteria 
management of St. Dennis 
fstimated 500 free meals were 
pven out. 

: Another purpose is to 
gradually make use of student 
K>. cards for most campus 
."notions. This will eliminate 

other contents of the house. 
Water and smoke damage was 
most apparent throughout. 

Most articles were saved, but 
were slightly harmed. Damage 
was listed at between $1500 and 

Several units of the Nat- 
chitoches Fire Department 
were on the scene as well as 
Campus Security. 

Val Marmillion, President of 
Pi Kappa Phi, after surveying 
the hazard, stated, "We ap- 
preciate all the help given to us 
by all who were at the scene. 
Especially, do we thank Sigma 
Kappa Sorority, for their 
assistance and for the use of 
their house, to store our 
valuables. We also appreciate 
the help given us by Dean

"As a characteristic of our 
Fraternity, with our usual 
group effort, things will be back 
to normal as soon as possible, if 
not sooner. We all are only 
thankful that no one was hurt." 

After all the confusion had 
died down, all the Pi Kapp

Student Court 
Aids Students 

By Gayle Palmer 

Although few students know 
about the workings of the 
Student Court, it does exist in 
order to aid the student. 

The purpose of the court is to 
provide NSU students the op- 
portunity of a hearing for 
constitutional and disciplinary 
problems. Students, faculty, 
and administrators have the 
right to bring charges before 
the court. 

The Northwestern State 
University Student Court is 
composed of seven un- 
dergraduates who are ap- 
pointed for the duration of their 
student life. The job of these 
judges is the adjudication of 
actions which come under their 

The present Student Court 
consists of a chief judge, Bob 
Lee, and associate judges 
Woody Schick, Charles Balliro, 
Clifton Miller, Edward Bradley, 
and Vickie Hebert. One voting 
postion exists on the court 
which is to be filled by a woman, 
preferably of sophomore 

Other vacancies open within 
the judicial structure are the 
clerk of court and the court 
secretary. Students interested 
in applying should either 
contact a member of the court 
or leave his name in the SGA 

The court takes one position, 
that of judicial responsibility. 
The court will be responsive to 
the needs and interests of both 
the students and the university. 
The needs and interests of one 
has no preference over the 
other. The university and the 
student are considered one and 
the same.

Play Provides Enjoyment 
To Appreciative Students 

By Mary Smith 

The first of the four NSU 
theatre productions to be 
presented this season was held 
this week to very appreciative 
audiences. William Gibson's 
award-winning drama and 
motion picture, "The Miracle 
Worker" opened Monday under 
the direction of Ray Schexnider, 
NSU assistant speech professor. 

"The Miracle Worker" is the 
dramatization of the real-life 
success story of the blind and 
mute Helen Keller. In the play, 
Helen as a child, is lead from 
her dark world of silence 
through the skill of her teacher 
Anne Sullivan, from Boston. 
The setting of this play is 
Tuscumbia, Alabama in the mid 

Proving herself worthy of the 
leading role of Anne Sullivan 
was Sally Graham. Although 
freshman are not usually known 
to capture the leading role in a 
university theatre production, 
Graham, a freshman speech 
major from Alexandria, 
exhibited her talents to enhance 
the success of this play 
production. Sally Graham is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Peyton J. Graham of Alexan- 
dria. A graduate of Bolton High 
School, she appeared in many 
school drama productions, and 
is also a member of National 
Honor Society, and Quill and

members of the cast were 
Charlie Park of Springhill as 
Captain Keller, a strong, 
domineering character, whose 
love for his child is deeply ex- 
pressed through the per-

Campus Project 
To Improve 
Litter Problem 

By Vicki Prather 

The Campus Beautification 
Committee of the SGA, has 
presented a plan for a clean 
sweep project on campus. 

The plan, if approved, would 
attempt to clean up the campus 
of all litter and straighten the 
area considerably. The com- 
mittee also plans to undertake a 
ground improvement in certain 
areas, and improve drainage. 

The afternoon which is 
proposed to be set aside to clean 
up is either November 4, 11, or 
18. If this is approved the 
committee will ask that classes 
be dismissed so that all students 
may be able to participate in the 

The clean up may be 
organized in one of two ways. 
Various organizations on 
campus may be asked to help 
with it, or the students as a 
whole group will participate. 
Either way a large scale 
program will be devised for use. 

Other areas to be covered in 
this project are, plants and 
trees name tagging to 
distinguish the many different 
types on campus, shrub plan- 
ting, and improving, correcting, 
and maintaining the lighting 

If this project is to be carried 
out, trucks for litter, tools, bags, 
and organization must be 

Further study is underway 
and a decision whether to adopt 
the proposal is now being 

when it comes to special effects 
and settings, this production 
proved to be different. Unlike 
the plays of the past a film was 
used to show the meeting of 
Anne Sullivan and Mr. Keller at 
the train station. Together with 
the synchronize sound effects 
the moods are set. Also, a 
special lighting effect was used 
to play upon the memory lapses 
of Anne's terrible past ex- 
periences and hardships that 
she had to endure as a child. 

Other members of the cast 
included: Wade Heaton of 
Baton Rouge as Dr. Anagnos, 
soul supporter of Anne Sullivan 
on her venture to teach Helen 
Keller; Mary Davis of 
Alexandria as Aunt Ev a 
southern woman of strong 
ideas; George Sewell as the 
Doctor, Doris Randolph, Beth 
Evans, Angela Evans, Kris 
Kinard as Bartha, Kelly Evans, 
Barbara Satcher as Vinny, 
Christie Maynard, and Chucky 
Olson as Percy, all of Nat- 

Much credit must be given to 
all those who helped make this 
play a success. The next NSU 
theatre production will be "Lion 
In Winter." The cast includes: 
Charles Park as Henry; J. C. 
Huntly as Elenor ; Wade Heaton 
as Richard; James Wilson as 
Geoffrey; Tom Torpy as John; 
Bobby Park as Allaid; and 
George Sewell as Phillip. If this 
next production is as good as the 
one just finished, the NSU 
students can be sure to look 
forward to another enjoyable 
play that can be seen November 
11 and 12. 

NSU To Host 
Parent's Day 

By Niva Chavez 

Northwestern State College 
will open its arms to the parents 
of its students this Saturday as 
the traditional celebration of 
Parent's Day begins. 

This past week students have 
been busy decorating dorms 
and making plans to help 
welcome visiting parents to the 
campus. Nametags have been 
made and will be presented to 
parents at the different dorms. 
Any off-campus student may 
pick up nametags for his 
parents at any of the dorms. 

The theme this year is 
"Thanks Mom and Dad" AWS 
and AMS have worked together 
in planing the activities which 
are to take place. 

The entire morning will be 
devoted to the receiving of 
guests at each dorm. The 
planned activities begin that 
afternoon. There will be open 
house at every dorm on campus 
from 2 to 4. Sororities, frater- 
nities, and religious 
organizations will also hold 
open houses during the day. 

After this, a reception will be 
held in the Student Union 
Ballroom from 4 to 5. Executive 
officers from AWS and AMS, 
Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Eta 

Sigma, faculty and ad- 
ministrative personnel will be 
there to meet with parents. 
During the reception .Honorary 
Parents of the Day" will be 
selected. This will be done by 
using a pre-arranged number as 
a counting mark. Every set of 
parents to enter on that number 
will be selected. 

At 5 that evening, a pep rally 
will begin in front of the Student 
Union Building. 

That evening, all parents will 
be admitted to the football 
game in Demon Stadium with 
their name tags. During half- 
time, "Honorary Parents" will 
be presented with gifts of silver 
by President Arnold Kilpatrick. 

Saturday's activities will be 
concluded in the Student Union 
Ballroom after the game. An 
all-college dance will be held at 
this time. Students and 
especially parents are 

"This day offers the parents a 
chance to see our campus and 
meet with faculty members," 
said Dean Hendrick, Dean of 
Women. "It also gives parents 
who graduated from Nor- 
thwestern a chance to see the 
changes which have taken place 
through the years." 

Duo To Feature 
In Coffee House 

By Cheryl Reese 

Another Coffee House will be 
presented October 19-21 by the 
Student Union governing board 
as it endeavors to continue its* 
new dimension of giving NSU 
students a wider spectrum of 

Folk singers Maggie and 
Terre Roche will engage the 
audience with their own com- 
positions as well as that of 
Simon and Garfunkel and Joni 
Mitchell. Most of the duets' 
repertoire consists of original 
music. When asked to describe 
the type of music that they 
would be performing, Terre 
says, "I would any day rather 
play for you than describe to 

Maggie and Terre began their 
career in August, 1968, when 
they auditioned for a live 
folksinging show and began 
performing under the 
management of Terri Thai. 
Maggie states: "This took us 
out of our hometown and in- 
troduced us to the forever un- 
conquered masses." 

The duo have performed at 
Malachy's II, Gaslight Cafe, 
Basement Cafe (all in New 
York), and the Thirsty Ear in 
Morristown, New Jersey since 
tnis time. They have also sung 
on WBAI radio and at several 
universities and churches. 

In the near future, Maggie 
and Terre plan to tour the 
Coffee House Circuit. Terre 
says: "I look at the Coffee 
House Circuit in this way, as an 
endeavor to help our music live 
for more and more people." 

The college Coffee House 
Circuit brings a new realm to 
the concept of entertainment on 
the college campus. The pur- 
pose is to provide exposure for 
new talent, an outlet for the 

artist, and moderately priced 
entertainment for the students. 

The conception for coffee 
houses is quite old, but this 
circuit was begun three years 
ago with four schools. Since 
then, it has grown in mem- 
bership to over 200 schools. 

The schools belonging to the 
Coffee House Circuit are 
arranged in circuits based on 
geographic areas. Each circuit 
has a coordinator who arranges 
the school's desired dates and 
the performers to appear on 
their particular campus. 

Student Union will be 
presenting other Coffee Houses 
in the spring semester. Val 
Marmillion, president of the 
Student Union, stated: "The 
governing board is working on 
special events to be presented 
throughout the year such as the 
Coffee House to provide the 
students at NSU more activities 
and enjoyment.'" 

The final 52 portable 
refrigerators available for 
NSU dormitory resident 
rental have arrived. These 52 
refrigerators are the same 
make and design as the 500 
rented at the beginning of the 
semester. Due to lateness of 
arrival, the rental rate for 
these 52 boxes has been 
reduced to $12 per unit. 

These 25 mini- 
refrigerators will be 
available for rental on a 
first-come, first -served basis 
at Demon Stadium beginning 
at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oc- 
tober 19, 1970. 

This refrigerator program 
is being sponsored by 
Associated Men Students, 1 
Bill Baskerville, president. \ 

Folksingers Maggie and Terre Roche will be 
featured in the Coffee House, October 19-21, 
in the Student Union cafeteria. The per- 

formance is part

The State Of The Union 

by Val Marmillion 

This angle proved successful. 
But, what do you think about 
movies? The Music and Films 

committee thought and 

thought .. yes, we definitely 
think they'll go over. The go- 
ahead was then given to the 
committee to plan and execute 
a movie program. Last week 
the movie, "The Green Berets," 
was presented in the 400-seat- 
capacity Arts and Sciences 
Auditorium. The response? ... 
An overflow crowd of ap- 
proximately 500-550. You liked 
the idea, so there will be more 
Wednesday Nights at the NSU 

These are just two programs 
which have come about because 
of student wants and demands. 
In future weeks this article will 
touch on many other activities 
soon to be incorporated in the 
Union 70 Program. In the 
meantime, enjoy the programs 
and feel free to offer any advice 
or criticism to the Union Board. 
Thank you for your par- 
ticipation thus far, and we'll be 
looking forward to seeing you at 
future events. 

For many years the cry for 
more activities on campus has 
been frequently heard. In an 
attempt to remedy this 
situation, the Union Board has 
instituted a number of new and 
exciting programs in its 
operation. The intention of the 
Board in making these new 
activities available was to offer 
a variety of programs that 
would appeal to all students 
attending Northwestern. 

For those of you who have 
cars that burn no gas, or, in 
other words, have to "Foot-It," 
the Union Board felt that a 
number of programs should be 
offered to you. Recently the 
Union's first coffeehouse, "The 
Purple Light," was presented. 

It was hoped that this particular 
event would reach ap- 
proximately 400 students. In- 
stead, the three-night program, 
featuring Dave Bradstreet, 
drew close to 1,100 students. 
Undoubtedly it was termed a 
huge success! Will there be 
more "Purple Light" coffee 
houses? You bet! 

A Look at SGA 

One of the most inherently 
essential rights guaranteed us 
by the United States Con- 
stitution is the right to be tried 
by our peers in a court of law. 

In the application of that 
particular right to our campus 
here, we have been fortunate - 
more so than the student bodies 
of many of our sister campuses 
in Louisiana. But until only 
reecently, the "court system" 
at NSU was designed mainly to 
encompass cases in which 
students have violated 
university regulations. 

The primary purpose of those 
organizations - the AWS and 
AMS judiciary boards, and the 
Student Discipline Committee - 
has been to mete out punish- 
ment after guilt has already 
been established. This year, the 
NSU student Court is being used 
more extensively as the "third 
branch" of student government. 

This court, consisting of a 
chief justice and six associate 
justices, will not only hear 
cases bearing upon the con- 
stitutionality of acts of the SGA, 


and appellate cases from the 
lower judiciary boards, but will 
also have original jurisdiction 
in cases of a more civil than 
criminal nature. 

The procedures prescribed by 
the Student Court bear a great 
deal of resemblance to those of 
our state and federal courts and 
are listed in the Demon 

But most important, the NSU 
Student Court provides for any 
student, faculty, or other 
member of the University 
community, an opportunity to 
insure his own rights are 
protected under the rules and 
regulations of the NSU Con- 

This court has been designed 
and will be used not as an ex- 
tension of SGA, but more as an 
additional organization with the 
goal of providing for the general 
welfare of each member of the 
academic community at North- 
western. It fills a gap in our 
system of judicial recourse, 
thereby making life at this 
university a bit more realistic. 

What Do You Think 

By Dorothy Jarzabek 

This column seeks the opinion 
of students and faculty on 
various topics. The question 
asked was: If you could change 
one thing on campus, what 
would it be? 

"The thing that needs 
changing the most of all the ills 
of NSU is not a tangible, 
mutable item. Northwestern is 
plagued by the current vogue of 
anti-intellectual complacency 
which I will put under the ar- 
bitrary title of Agnewism. The 
ignorance of students and 
faculty of the changing en- 
vironment and the changes 
necessary to live in peace is 
flourishing now because of 
outworn propaganda that is 

deadly in the 1970's. Right here, 
right now is the place and time 
to begin to try to solve con- 
temporary problems, but with a 
conservative administration 
and a backward student body, 

these steps are impossible. 'If 
there was one thing I could 
change at NSU right now, it 
would be arrogant ignorance of 
the campus. Wake up people, or 
the times will kill you!" Wade 
Heaton, Baton Rouge, La. 

"When they planned the 
Biology building, they should 
have included a sidewalk. You 
should see my shoes after it 
rains." Gay Allison, 
'Shreveport, La. 

"I would like to see an im- 
provement of intellectual at- 
mosphere on this campus. I 
deplore the lack of it. We need to 
stimulate it and find methods of 

stimulation. Unfortunately, I'm 
not sure it's possible." Mr. 
Porter, History Dept. 

"I would like to see the basic 
structure of the SGA changed. 
Presently we do not enjoy a 
truly representative type of 
government. Representation by 
classes is a total farce for two 
reasons: 1( This school is not 

divided by classes, rather it is 
divided by interest groups, and 
2( A serious lack of student 
participation is evident; people 
don't even know who they are 
voting for. Perhaps the solution 
could be a Student Senate which 

would consist of representatives 
from every scholastic depart- 
ment. Another solution could be 
a representative for every 
organization. The SGA is 
planning a Constitutional 
Convention. This convention 
will be a total mistake unless 
the basic structure of the SGA is 
radically changed." Donnie 
Couvillion, Alexandria, La. 

"I wish they would change 
some of the restrictions that 
they have on the girls. It is 
ridiculous to be put under rules 
thai my mother does not even 
impose upon me." Kathy 
Finnerty, Bossier City, La. 

"There is so much to gripe 
about, I don't know where to 
begin." Geralyn Barthel, St. 
Gabriel, La. 

"I wish they would serve 
better food in Iberville. I get 
indigestion when I eat my 
mother's cooking. I'm not used 
to easily digested food." Keith 
White, Alexandria, La.

News And Views 

"People say that marijuana is 
not as dangerous as tobacco or 
alcohol - that is as if you are 
comparing a shower to a 
hurricane," says Dr. Jean 
Patrice Chiasson. 

Dr. Chiasson is associate 
professor of psychiatry and 
director of the Alcoholics 
Treatment Services, at the 
school of medicine, University 
of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. 
He believes that present laws 
governing marijuana are too 
harsh because "drugs are a 
medical problem, not a legal 

Marijuana is under the 
narcotics law, but Dr. Chiasson 
stresses the need for the laws 
governing marijuana to be 
placed under the Drug and Food 
Act. "It is not physically ad- 
dicting, but it can cause 
psychological dependancy. Any 
marijuana causes a euphoria, 

an exaggerated desire. Even if 
it doesn't open the door to 
heroin, the mere fact that it 
creates a desire for 
gratification is infantile," he 

Arguments for and against 
marijuana to date only disclose 
fragmentary evidence, 
although case histories and 
medical research are revealing 
more evidence concerning the 
dangers in the use of 

Antagonist of marijuana rely 
heavily on a vague argument of 
the desire and mental con- 
ditioning that develop in users. 
Vague is the word pro 
marijuanaists have tagged to 
this argument. But how vague is 
this argument? 

Desire and inhibition are 
familiar to everyone of us. 

For What It's Worth 

"I believe you think you un- 
derstood what I said, but I don't 

think you realize that what you 
heard, is not what I meant!" 


By Carl Silverstein 

These are a part of our 
everyday lives that have ent- 
wined deeply in the emotional 
fabric of each individual's 
nervous system. It is hard to 
define any emotion experienced 
by an individual, but 
generalities are assumed from 

the observation of many in- 
dividuals with in a controlled 
condition. From these ob- 
servations, specialists note the 
desire marijuana creates in a 
user. The user's desire is 
inhibition, frankly, to let 
himself go, or even escape 

Addicts to drugs of more 
potency display this same 
general trend of desire and 
mental conditioning before 
their minds are irreparably 
damaged after being hooked too 
long. In 95 percent of heroin 
patients that are treated by Dr. 
Chiasson, their case histories 

reveal grass started them on to 
LSD, heroin, and to other drugs. 

Vague generalities does not 
seem to aptly describe the 
arguments of anti- 
marijuanaists. True, no ab- 
solute facts or documentary 
evidence have been produced to 
prove the dangers of 
marijuana, but the amount of 

users has only recently climbed 
to great numbers. Previously it 
was hard to find enough 
patients or users to conduct 
tests on, so obviously only 
vague amounts of information 
could be extracted. However, 

the sudden increase of 
marijuana users has also 
provided an increased source of 
information for specialists, 
who, as a whole, find more and 
more facts about the bad 
aspects of marijuana. 



I would like to thank you for 
last week's article, "Student 
Suggestions Cause Change in 
Dining Halls." The Food Ser- 
vice Committee is working to 
improve the conditions and the 
food in our cafeterias, and the 
management of the cafeterias 
are more than willing to work 

with us on any suggestions that 
we may have. I urge students 
with a complaint or a com- 
plement concerning our food 
service to stop by the SGA of- 
fice, or talk to the cafeteria 
management. We are here to 
serve the students and we 
welcome any suggestions.

Dear Editor: 

David Precht's essay on 
"panty raids" was a welcomed 
relief from the timid editorials 
that have appeared in the 
Current Sauce this semester. 
Precht tells it like, it is, 
regardless of whom he might 
offend, an element that is 
sacrificed in the Current Sauce 
in the name of fairness and 
which results in diluted, im- 
potent editorials that pack the 
punch of an anemic mosquito. 

Precht brought out some good 
points. Many of the students of 
this university are still living in 
the rock'n' roll white socks age. 
They do not have the guts nor 
the initiative to come out of 
their alcoholic stupors and 
fraternity fairylands long 
enough to realize that this 
country is in trouble, and that 
there are more important 
things to do than drink beer and 

steal girl's panties-a practice 
that shows how immature some 
students are since even 
pubescent boys can find better 
ways of getting kicks these 

Northwestern students could 
do so much to help this country 
where freedom has become a 
hoax and the Constitution only a 
paper fantasy which is void 
where prohibited by law 
(Natchitoches) and not ap- 
plicable to Blacks, Indians, 
students, long-hairs, soldiers, 
athletes, and those who are in 
conflict with the powers that be. 

Yet Northwestern students 
live in their dreamworlds- 
waving their flags and singing 
their anthems-blind and deaf- 
losing bit by bit what little 
freedom they have to a monster 
they not only ignore, but call 
their friend. 

Evidence of this lack of 
student participation is the 85 
percent of freshmen who failed 
to vote in the recent election. 
And the result-a university 
administration that refuses to 
give students back the rights 
that it never had the authority 
to take in the first place.

Dear Editor, 

I want to first of all thank you 
for being one of the first women 
students on campus to take an 
active interest in women's 
regulations. I have heard much 
"discussion through the 
grapevine," but no interest has 
been actively shown concerning 

women's regulations by other 
women students on campus. 

Last spring- at one of the AWS 
meetings, everyone present was 
asked to go back to their dorms 
and get suggestions for changes 
in the handbook if the women 
thought it was needed. There 
was very little response to say 
the least. 

If the women students on 
campus want changes made in 
their regulations, why don't 
they do something about it? I 
think that the women can see 
the changes that have already 
been made by the AWS con- 
cerning their hours. All of the 

hours were raised considerably 
this fall except those of first 
semester freshmen. Also, a no 
hours dormitory was opened for 
senior and junior honor students 
with parental permission and 
also all seniors in good standing 
with parental permission. 

There are several op- 
portunities for the women 
students to express their views. 
The regular meetings each 
month are one of the best places 
to express an interest. The next 
two meetings are to be held 
November 2 and December 7 in 

the Student Union Ballroom at 
7:30 p. m. Also a suggestion box 
will be placed in each dormitory 
for suggestions concerning 
anything of interest to the 

The AWS officers cannot work 
on making changes until the 
wishes of the women are made 
to them. If you, the women 
students of NSU, want change, 
then do something about it by 

In my opinion, we need 
certain rules for governing 
ourselves on campus. I think 
that we need these rules 
because we are individuals, but 
we must respect the rights and 
needs of others to study, sleep, 
etc. We are living in a dor- 
mitory and not a home or a 

Rules are necessary. Think 
about this and then if the women 
students want to change them of 
some of the rules ... LET THEM

By Bessie Brock- Editor < 


Last week elections were held in the Studen Union to choose' 
State Fair Queen and her court for the coming State 
celebration. Freshman runoff elections were conducted at the 
time. The way in which the elections were handled drew criti 
and protests from a number of students. 

One of the biggest protests concerning the elections was 
things were very disorganized and that they were not conducte 
a very business-like manner. 

Student ID Cards were used for the first time in this election 
many students complained that ID's were not checked and 
everyone had to show his ID. It is my opinionthat ifa rule is m/ 
then all who come under the jurisdiction of this rule should be i 
to abide by it. Also complaints were made that names of s- 
students were not struck from the list as they voted and ther 
these students could have voted twice. 

I suggest that during the next election, if voting machines car 
be secured, that four people be at the voting table at all times, 
first person should check ID's; the second, strike names from 
list; the third, hand out ballots, and the forth, make sure i 
ballots get in the proper box, especially if more than one electio 1 
being conducted at the same time. 

I also think it would be a good idea to count the votes in 
Student Union Ballroom where any intersted party could att ] 
and see the votes tallied. Votes could be called out ove 
microphone and tallied on blackboards. In this way no one c- 
raise a question about the way in which the votes were counte 
parliamentarian could be appointed to keep order and to keep n J 
at a minimum. I see no reason that votes could not be counted 
this manner since they are published in the paper and po 
outside the SGA office. 

If counting the votes in the Ballroom is not practical, th 
suggest that a representative from each class be allowed in 
room where the votes are being counted. In this way each class 
be assured that they are being represented and their interests 
being watched. 

Nominations were held differently this year also. It had bee 
practice in preceeding years for organizations on campus to sub 
names for the State Fair Court, but this year this practice 
discontinued. As it is, each dormitory on campus nominates t 
girls from each floor and these names are submitted.Nominati 
are seldom taken seriously. In girl's dormitories they are 
hurriedly just to get the floor meeting over and in men's 
mitories, since they are not required to attend floor meetings, 
monitors usually end up making the nominations. Perh 
something should be done about this practice also. 

Another problem at the elections was that as ballots were ha 
out, the people at the voting table were soliciting votes for 
candidate or candidates. This practice is not only bad, but it 
also unfair to the other candidates who were running. 

I believe that if the elections were conducted in a more bus ! 
like manner and were operated more efficiently, concentrating! 
getting ID's checked and ballots out instead of trying to 
students to vote for particular condidates, that many of 
problems will be solved. 


Due to popular demand, the Muckraker column will] 
reappear beginning in the next issue of the Current Sauce. All 
avid fans of the column, which began in last year's paper, are 
urged not to miss it.

Greeks Prepare for Mom and Dad's Day 


Pledging and preparations for 
Tech weekend highlights this 
week's activities for Pi Kappa 
Phi. The brothers are planning 
as usual, various activities for 
the next two weeks leading up to 
Tech weekend. This weekend

freshman class. 

In intramurals Pi Kapp 
boasts a 2-1 record with plans 
for further victory. 


The Alpha Zeta Chapter of 
Sigma Sigma Sigma held a 
work night last Thursday at the 
house. Signs were made in 
preparation for the upcoming 
games and also for Tech 

This coming Saturday a 
reception will be held for all the 
Moms and Dads at our house 
from two to four in the af- 
ternoon. Tri Sigma welcomes 
all the parents and hopes they 
enjoy their visit to the NSU 

Tri Sigma is sponsoring a car 
wash Friday, October 16th in

Last Sunday afternoon, Phi 
Mu's held an informal party at 
the home of Cynthia Phillips. A 
skit was presented by the ac- 
tives, and everyone just relaxed 
and enjoyed themselves. 

At our regular meeting 
Monday night, further plans 
were made on the Moms and 
Dads Day Reception. Phi Mu 

also completed plans to place a 
toycart in the Natchitoches 
Parish Hospital as one of our 
service projects. 

Tuesday night a surprise 
party was held for the Phis at 
which they went on a treasure 
hunt and discovered who their 
Big Sisters were.

One of the many attractive 
buildings on Northwestern's 
campus is the Student Union, 
situated in the heart of NSU. 

There are many various 
rooms contained in the Student 
Union for the pleasure of the 
students. It contains over 65,000 
square feet of space for the 
many areas, and different 
departments. It was con- 
structed in 1966 and was opened 
for Homecoming that same 
year. It is now open to serve 
students from 8 a.m. to 10 pjn. 

One of the newest features of 
the Union is the newly built 
patio, in the outside center area. 
Students are invited to go sit 
and it may be reserved for 
parties . . Furniture is soon hope 
to be installed. Also in the patio 
is a colorful fountain for 
nightime enjoyment. 

On the first floor lobby is a 
bookstore, games area, beauty 
and barber shop and lounge 

The games area contains a 
bowling area and a billiard 
room. In the bowling alley are 
eight lanes with equipment

room contains 12 tables. Mr. 
Adkins, manager of the area 
invites all students, including 
coeds to take part. Leagues are 
welcomed, and lockers may 
also be rented. 

The Imp's Curl, NSU's beauty 
shop operated by Mrs. Susan 
Sexton, is open by appointment. 
She features hair style and 
wigs. Any coed is invited to 
come in for a visit. 

Mr. Paul Strahan is manager 
of the University barber shop 
and is open from 8-5, Mon.-Fri.

Reflections on Truth 

by Wayne Couvillion 

Yet, life, as reasoned by the minds of men, 
continues all around, 

While the handmade of truth crumbles to dust! 

Why should it be ... this paradox of existence, 

Is not man created in the image of God and thus destined to live ! 

As lightly falls the snow on a calm December eve, 
So comes the breath of a new born child. 
He has no thought of this life expressing, 
For he is the handmade of life itself. 

He grows up fast, not knowing why, 

Yet his inner thoughts seek to console. 

They tell him it is this way or that, 

But lo, who are they to tell truth as is . . . 

They, who like him, are the handmade of truth itself?

Jan, who "plans to teach far away such as Atlanta,

Asked about her ideas concerning no-hour dorms for 
girls, Jan replied, "I feel no-hour dorms should be 
instigated entirely if the girls have their parent's 
permission. Northwestern is becoming slowly more 
liberal-just think, we've been allowed to wear pants 
to class for the last couple of years-wow!

Demons Lead GSC 
In Rushing Offense 

By David Miller 
■Gulf States Conference 
-tball, so far this year, has 
jjven it's fans something to yell 
bout. Let's look at how the GSC 
earns are shaping up 

On the ground Northwestern 
in the lead with a game 
verage of 333.3 yards. Nor- 
hwestern's position in the of- 
ensive rushing slot can be 
ttributed to the work horse 
f forts of Demon's Richard 
Fare and Tommy Wallis. Ware 
ias averaged 116.3 strips per 
jame and Wallis has 83.0 yards 
r game to his credit. 
On the individual basis 
lortheast's Joe Profit leads the 
"Conference in ground gaining, 
"he swift senior has averaged 
52.0 yards per game for his 
ndian tribe. Ware holds second 
lace with his 116.3 average. 
Profit also leads the GSC list 
i total offense with his game 
verage of 152.0. Louisiana 
'ech's Ken Lantrip is runner-up 
nth a game average of 148.8 
nd Mike Pool of Northwestern 
5 third with a 115.2 average. 
Tech's Lantrip leads the 
assers with a game completion 
verage of 12.2. The Bulldog 
ifthander has hit on 49 of 98 
asses for 587 yards. 
Leading receptions is Tech's 
ohn Adams with 15 for 110 

yards. He is followed by 
Raymond Mahfouz of 
Southeastern who has caught 13 
aerials for 152 yards. 

Coach Pat Kenelly's 
Southeastern Lions are still the 
toughest team to run against as 
they've held their foes to a 
game average of 76.2 yards, 
above runner-up Northeast, 
who has held their foes to 98.7 
yards per game. 

In the air it's a different story. 
The Tech Bulldogs lead in pass 
defense by letting only 63.8 
yards a game get by them from 
the air. The nearest contenders 
for this slot are the Cowboys 
from McNeese who have been 
giving up 129.2 yards per game. 

Profit is leading the con- 
ference in kick-off returns by 
picking up 3 and taking them 
back for a 45.7 yard average. Al 
Philips from NSU trails with a 
31.1 average in 7 carries. 

USL's Roy Pendergraft has 
the big shoe so far. The toe- 
jammer has kicked 23 punts for 
a 41.0 yards average. Larry 
Smith of Northwestern is next in 
line with 39.5 yards per game. 

Louisiana Tech has given up 
only 191.8 yards per game on 
total defense for the conference 
best. USL follows with 240.6 
yards per game. Northwestern 
is last giving up an average of 
334.7 yards per game. 

has a fine target in All- 
American flanker Jack Stanfill. 
Stanfill comes straight from the 
Arkansas Rattlers where he 
gained All-Pro cornerback 
honors in the Continental 
League. He has averaged over 
30 yards per catch this season 
with six grabs for 181 yards. 

Other Greats 

Other past greats include 
halfback John Pittman from 
Florida State, defensive ends 
Line Lippincott of Penn State 
and Mike Atturio from the 
Naval Academy, cornerback 
Bill Jaroncyk of Southern 
California and Ron Moseley, a 
center out of the Naval 

Lippincott is an Orange Bowl 
veteran while Jaroncyk started 
for USC's 1968 national 
champions and was named to 
the All-Bowl team after the 
Rose Bowl. 

Pittman, a three-year starter, 
smashed all Goshawk rushing, 

records a year ago but hs been 
slowed by injuries in 190. 

Favored Northwesten takes 
a 3-1 mark into the affa- after 
an open date following NSU's 
21-17 Gulf States Conerence 
loss to Northeast two weeks 

Saturday's contest could 
serve as a tune-up fir next 
week's classic with La. 'ech but 
Coach Glenn Gossett warns, 
"We certainV can't aford to 
look ahead. Tie Navy ham has 
a lot of pride and wih their 
bundle of forner college stars 
we'll have to >lay wellto win." 
Comnon Foe 

Saturday's opponent have 
had one corraon foe - Nor- 
theast - and F;nsacola dropped 
a 28-14 decisin. 

The Demon are expected to 
stick with thir record-setting 
ground atbek that has 
produced a JSC record (539 
yards agains Florence State) 
and an averge of 333 stripes 

per game. 

Heading the powerful back- 
field is senior fullback Richard 
Ware, who barring an injury, 
could set a school season 
rushing record. Ware has 
blasted for 465 yards in four 
games and if he continues the 
pace will erase the mark of 818 
set by All-American and All-Pro 
Charlie Tolar in 1957. Rugged 
Richard, with five TD's, is also 
in contention for the school 
touchdown record of 12 set by 

Halfback Tommy Wallis is 
next in the rushing race with 332 
stripes on 65 carries for a 5.1 
average. The senior from 
Benton has three six-pointers. 

Sophomore halfback Donald 
Johnson (244 yards on 47 tries) 
and senior signal caller Mike 
Pool (222 yards on 50 attempts) 
round out the starting backf ield. 

Pool, hampered by a sore 
shoulder, has managed to 
complete only 37 per cent of his 

attempts while pitching five 
interceptions. However he has 
excellent receivers in split end 
Al Phillips, an All-GSC selection 
in 1968, and Wallis. Phillips, 
second in the conference for 
kickoff returns, has eight 
catches for 123 yards and a 
touchdown. Wallis has nabbed 
seven for 80 markers. 

Also Starting 
Other offensive starters in- 
clude tight end Paul Zoller, 
tackles Leonard Richardson 
and Don Miser, and the All-GSC 
trio of guards Leslie Robertson 
and Bobby Koncak plus center 
Gary McCrary. 

Defensively, Northwestern 
has come up with the big play 
but has yielded yardage bet- 
ween the twenties. NSU is 
ranked at the bottom of the 
league in rushing defense and 
fourth in passing defense. 

Proable defensive starters 
are ends Clinton Ebey and Greg

'Big Thiee' Lead the Attack 

By Skipper Young 

The Northwestern Demons 
have been noted for their stiff 
ground attack this year and 
three reasons for this notorious 
reputation are Bobby Koncak, 
Leslie Robertson, and Gary 
McCrary. These three have 
been opening holes for the 
Demon backs for two seasons. 

Bobby Koncak 

Bobby Koncak is a junior 
from South Oak Cliff High of 

Dallas. He peks 216 pounds on 
his 5 foot 10 ich frame, and is a 
two-year leferman. Last year 
he was an il-GSC selection at 
offensive ;uard. He was 
switched ftm defense to of- 
fense after is freshman year. 
Bobby is an exceptionally 
strong blocer and a top can- 
didate for e-conference honors 
this season Last year he won 
the Knockcwn Award. 
Lese Robertson 

Leslie Ttoertson is the other 
guard. Leie is a senior from

nvitational women's volleyball 
Mmrnament is held Friday and 
iaturday at Northwestern. 
Houston, which last year 
efeated NSU for the A division 
tiampionship, will face com- 
etition from seven other 
hools for this year's title. 
J Other teams who'll be entered 
Aclude Lamar Tech, Southwest 
|aptist College, Mississippi 
fulf Coast Junior College, 
outhern State College, Nor- 
|ieast State University, Texas 
Women's University and South- 
western Louisiana. 

Play will be from 5 p. m. to 10 
p.m. Friday and 9 a jn. to 4 p.m. 
Saturday in Prather Coliseum. 
NSU's A team will play at 5 
Friday and the B team will play 
at 6:15 Friday. 

Members of Northwestern 's A 
team ar« Pat Tauzin, Frances 
Graves, Cissy Smith, Debbie 
Myers, Beth Crane, Debbie 
Krane, Janet Parker and 
Carolyn Comer. Judy Shaw, 
Greta Wallace, Pat Ortigo, 
Mary Jane Mayfield, Linda 
Burkhalter, Patty Chenault, 
Lisa McCaleb, Rhonda Eller- 
man and Cathy Miers comprise 
the B team. 

Gary McCrary 

Btby Koncak 

LaGrange High in Lake 
Charles. At 6 foot 2, and 227 
pounds, he has good size and 
exceptional speed for his size. 
Coach John Ropp calls him a 
"savage blocker". Leslie was 
an All-GSC selection last year 
and is a top candidate to repeat 
this season. He is a one year 

Gary McCrary 

Gary McCrary is the center 
for the Demons. A two-year 
letterman from Istrouma High 
School, Gary is extremely quick 
and an excellent blocker. He is 
one of the quickest linemen in 
the conference. This junior won 
honorable mention little All- 
American honors as well as All- 
GSC last year. He should be a 
repeater again this year. The 6 
foot 1 inch 195 lb. center was 
slowed last spring by an off- 
season knee operation but came 
around fine as he worked this 
summer. He won the Highest 
Grade Award last season. 

Coach Ropp should be proud 
of his offensive line, with these 
three in the middle along with 
Leonard Richardson and Don 

Miser at tackles. They provide 
more than adequate blocking 
for their backs. 

Such people as Richard Ware, 
Tommy Wallis, Don Johnson, 
and Mike Pool are glad to see 
this offensive line back from 
last year's Cinderella team. 
They are the offensive backs 
and they have nothing but 
praise for their interior line. 
Pool says that center, McCrary 
is the best in the conference and 
he expects many post-season 
honors to come Gary's way. 
Wallis says of the line, "They 
have graded out well thus far 
and this shows how consistent

Communications includes four 
speech courses, three jour- 
nalism courses, and one elec- 
tive to be approved by the 
student's department head. 

The speech courses in the new 
curriculum include the fun- 
damentals of speech, public 
speaking, discussion, and an 
introduction to radio. The 
journalism courses required 
are newspaper reporting, and 
two public relations courses.

Louisiana Pilots 
Heroin Program 

McComb Miss.-'Today we 
can eradicate heroin addiction. 
We have the tools in our hands 
right now and additional drugs 
coming up through research," 
said Doctor Paul Williamson, 
Head of Practice Research. 

Doctor J. T. Nix of New 
Orleans, Doctor Walter Alvarez 
of Chicago, and a third member 
not named as yet, form a three- 
member committee dedicated 
to fighting heroin. The com- 
mittee is financed by private 

Louisiana is used as the pilot 
state for the first statewide 
effort to fight hereoin. "We 
have increased the treatment 
facilities by tenfold. We are now 
beginning to show the people 
what a thoroughgoing effort can 

"New patients are put on 
methadone-also a narcotic-for 
six months to a year," Doctor 
Williamson said. "At the end of 
this time patients are taken off 
methadone by the use of an 
electrosleep machine. Almost 
ready for release is a new drug 
that works as a narcotic an- 
tagonist. The drug itself is not 
narcotic at all." 

Doctor Nix said the program 
of the national addiction 
committee in no way interferes 
with other programs. "Our job 
is to cooperate with anybody 
who will fight this horrible 
problem of drugs," Doctor Nix 

"In the pilot state of 
Louisiana we are learning in 
addition to accomplishing" said 
Doctor Nix. "Our second state 
program will begin in Texas in 
about two weeks. We have the 
attack now, and we are going to 
whip this thing or it will engulf 
us. Wish us luck."

The classic Tech- 
Northwestern football game 
will celebrate its 56th an- 
niversary this weekend when 
hundreds of students from 
Louisiana Tech and Nor- 
thwestern converge on 
Shreveport for the annual 

One of the oldest rivalries in 
the state, the series began in 
1907 and was played locally, 
alternating between the two 
schools, until 1937. The game 
has since become the annual 
opening event of the Louisiana 
State Fair. 

Traditionally known as "Tech 
Weekend" by Northwestern 
students, the event and 
preparations leading up to it 
have progressed a long way 
since 1907 when the only pre- 
game activities were a bonfire 
and a pep rally. Preparations 
for what is now one of the major 
activities on the social calendar 
of both schools begin long in 
advance of the scheduled event. 

Prior to the occasion, the 
State Fair Queen and her Court 
are selected by the student body 
to represent the school in ac- 
tivities throughout the week and 
for presentation at pre-game 
activities Saturday night. 
Nightly car brigades ending in 
gigantic pep rallies are 
scheduled throughout the 
week, known as Wreck Tech 
Week. The NSU SGA assigns 
activities such as Purple and 
White Day, Hang 'Em High Day 
and Wreck Tech Day. 

Wreck Tech buttons and signs 
are sold and distributed by 
various organizations 
throughout the week, and a sign 
contest is held and an award is 
made to the organization with 
the best sign. 

Coffeehouse Show 
Termed A Success 

By Vicki Prather 

Surrounded by shadows and 
soft lights, and the gentle 
sounds of Folk music, Maggie 
and Terre Roche made their 
opening appearance at this 
season's second NSU Cof- 
feehouse production on Oct. 19. 

Maggie and Terre 's careers 
began about five years ago, 
when their Mother gave Maggie 
a guitar. Since then they have 
visited in such places as 
Malach's II, Gaslight Cafe, (all 
in New York), the midwest area 
and radio stations, churches 
and Universities in New Jersey. 

Areas of local interest in 
which they have recently ap- 
peared are Centenary College in 
Shreveport, and also in 
Pineville, La. 

They are soon to begin a tour 
of the New England states. 
Maggie and Terre were 

Terre, a small, blond 17 year 
old girl spoke with a soft, shy 
voice, which later changed to 
the more boisterous one while 

Terre replied, "We write 
most of our music. Some of our 
favorites we have written are 
''California'', and 
"Malachays", a song about a 
New York club. She continued 
by saying, "I hope our music 
will help us to live for all people 

They sang hits by Simon and 
Garfunkle, and Joni Mitchell, as 
well as their own original songs. 

They were, indeed, girls who 
have come along way, and their 
faces are ones who have seen 
alot and experienced quite a bit. 

Each year, the Demons 
manage to capture a Tech 
Bulldog, that is tried and found 
guilty of a long list of felonies. 
The bulldog is hanged at 
Wednesday nights pep rally, 
and his remains lay in state in 
the Student Union Thursday for 
all to view. In the traditional 
pep rally and bonfire Thursday 
night, the Bulldog is burned in 
effigy, and his ashes later 
buried. The final campus event, 
a Wreck Tech dance is held in 
the Student Union Ballroom 
Thursday night following the 
bonfire. On Friday, students are 
busy decorating their cars and 
preparing for the trip to 

Many other events have been 
added to the classic throughout 
the years. One such tradition, is 
the exchange of the Tech- 
Northwestern Flag. The flag 
presentation has been an annual 
ceremony at the Northwestern- 
Tech game since 1949 when 
Northwestern student leader 

J.O. Lancaster began the 
banner exchange. The banner 
traditionally remains on the 
campus of the victor until the 
next year. The banner has 
become known as The Rag. 

Dudley Fulton, Northwestern 
dean of students, recalls that 
the first Northwestern-Tech 
banner was a triangular, 12-foot 
long banner. Northwestern 
presented it to Tech the first 
year and never saw it again 
until 1953. 

As a matter of fact Tech had 
won it so often, school officials 
forgot to bring it to the 1953 

Speech Alley Is 

SGA has approved the re- 
establishment of the weekly 
Free Speech Alley. Discussions 
will be held every Tuesday from 
12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m. in the 
quadrangle of the Student Union 

Once a week the meeting will 
be held in the Ballroom and a 
panel discussion will be held on 
a given subject by two or 
more speakers followed by an 
open discussion period. 

All participants must be in 
some way connected with 
Northwestern and must present 
a valid I.D. card. All speakers 
must be recognized by the 
moderator before he will be 
allowed to speak. The 
moderator will be a member of 
the SGA and will not be allowed 
to enter into any discussions. 

The Free Speech Alley will be 
given four weeks trial run. If 
after this time there has not 
been enough student support it 
will again be discontinued. 

game and had to deliver it to the 
Northwestern campus later. 

Since the rivalry began in 
1907, Louisiana Tech has 
captured the most games, 
winning 36 and losing 15. Four of 
the games have ended in ties. 
All four of these games had a 
score of 0-0. 

Even though Tech has won 
the most games, NSU and Tech 
have been considered fairly 
matched since 1958. Since that 
time, of the 12 games played, 
Tech has won seven, and NSU 
has captured five. The total 
scores for both teams since 1958 
show the Bulldogs over NSU 239 
points to 206. 

More statistics show that 
Tech has the longest winning 
streak in the series with a total 
of nine games from 1945 to 1952. 
NSU's longest winning streak 
occured from 1938 to 1940 with a 
three game win. The Demons 
have been scoreless in 14 games 
and the Bulldogs have been 
scoreless in 10 games. 

The worst score that the 
Bulldog's have compiled 
against the NSU Demons was in 
1911, when Tech toppled NSU 
with a score of 39-0. NSU's best 
win over Tech came in 1932, 
when the Demons overran the 
Bulldogs by a score of 33-0. 

The pennant began to look a 
little ragged in the late 1950's 
and was replaced by a colorful, 
flag-type banner in 1959. A 
ceremony was held after the 
1959 game to burn the 
triangular pennant. 

In 1963, the new flag was 
stolen from the Louisiana Tech 
Student Union during the Mc- 
Neese football game on the 
Tech campus. It was necessary 
to design and prepare a new 
flag before the 1964 Louisiana 
Tech-Northwestern game at the 
State Fair. 

The flag prepared in 1964 is 
the one still in existence. Itts a 
huge, rectangular flag 
featuring the colors of both 

Student Government 
Association officials from each 
school will meet at the center of 
the field immediately after the 
game for the presentation of the 
banner, which remains on the 
campus of the winner until next 
year's game. 

Many changes have been 
made in the traditions 
throughout the years. This year, 
both schools enter the game 
under their newly acquired 
university status, and for the 
first time in a number of years, 
the traditional parade and pep 
rally in downtown Shreveport 
has been relocated.

A Look at SGA 

. by Phil Frank For What It's Worth 

An opinion expressed in last 
week's edition of the Current 
Sauce brought to light (perhaps 
somewhat prematurely) a 
project already planned by the 
Student Government 
Association. The author of that 
letter, Donnie Couvillion, 
mentioned that SGA should be 
more representative than it 
presently is. 

This problem of the structure 
of our student government has 
been contemplated in the past, 
and is presently being 
researched by the SGA. A 
"Constitutional Convention" is 
tentatively set for Oct. 31 and 
Nov. 1, at which a revisionary 
committee will attempt to 
rewrite the present Nor- 
thwestern State University 

During the short period I have 
served as Student Body 
President, I and other members 
of SGA have become aware of 
the shabby, ambiguous state of 
that document. In some areas, 
the scope of SGA is far too 
restricted, while in others, the 
duties prescribed exceed 
structural limitations. 

At any rate, some revisions 
will be made next weekend. 
Following that, the student body 
will be called upon to ratify the 
revised Constitution. The im- 
portance of unprecedented 
participation in that election 
(hopefully some time this fall) 
will be further stressed in a 
future article(s) in this paper. 

One of the primary concerns 
of the upcoming convention will 


be to rectify the "represen- 
tation gap" mentioned by 
Couvillion. Under the present 
constitution, leadership in SGA 
is too restrictive and ex- 
clusionary, and in my opinion, 
will have to be changed. Some 
students (particularly graduate 
students) are under- 
represented, even though they 
are required to pay SGA fees. If 
the project is successful in these 
areas, at least this problem will 
be eradicated. 

Other areas, including the 
judiciary system, student rights 
and freedoms, and student 
discipline will be covered in the 
two-day convention. 

The point being made in this 
article is this: the proposed 
constitution should be practical 
and lasting, and therefore, it 
should be framed with the 
desires of each member of the 
student body of NSU held 
primary. And, it is the 
responsibility of each member 
to make his desires known to the 
SGA. Suggestions presented in 
writing in the form of a letter or 
note, signed, and mailed to the 
Student Government Office, 
NSU, will be considered during 
the convention.

The State Of The Union 

by Val Marmillion 

With the action and ex- 
citement of State Fair upon us, 
it is proper to present an 
overview at this time. The 
activities that procede the 
annual State Fair Classic 
transform the Union into a state 
of pandemonium for an entire 

The excitement began 
Monday evening with a spirited 
pep rally on the Student Union 
Bridge. This pep rally 
proceeded the first of three 
performances in the "Purple 
Light" Coffee House series. The 
Union Board, during its second 
"Purple Light," presented 
Maggie and Terre Roche, two 
folk-type singers. 

Following this action-packed 
day the stage was set for the 
sale of buttons, distribution of 

banners, and placement of 
spirit-arousing signs around the 
NSU campus. 

As is typical of State Fair 
week, the Tech mascot lay in 
state Thursday in the Union 
Lobby. That night after a pep 
rally and bonfire, the Union 
Board presented an all- 
university "Wreck Tech" 
Dance that concluded the high- 
spirited week. 

Thanks to the efforts of the 
SGA State Fair planning 
committee and SGA School 
Spirit Committee, the events of 
the week were enjoyable and 
rewarding. The Union Board 
members have all planned to be 
on board for the successful 
outcome of this year's en- 
counter. Enjoy your weekend! 
Drive with care so that you can 
be there and return. LET'S 

News And Views 

The Quebec Liberation Front 
(FLQ) still demands the release 
of 23 political prisoners and 
$500,000 in gold for the release of 
British diplomat James R. 
Cross, kidnapped Oct. 5. A 
second victim of the FLQ, 
Pierre Laporte, late Quebec 
labor minister, was murdered 

Tuesday, Canadian police and 
troops found the terrorist's 
hideout where Laporte was 
murdered. Paul Rose and Marc 
Carbonneau, two FLQ mem- 
bers who are believed to be the 
kidnappers, are as yet still at 
large. Quebec provincial police 
issued nationwide warrants for 
their arrest, and sealed off 
escape routes from Quebec 

The government still offers a 
one-way plane ride to Havana - 
for Cross' captors in exchange 
for turning Cross over to Cuban 
officials on a bridge over the St. 
Lawrence River. He would be 
released when the kidnappers 
arrived in Cuba. 

In two handwritten notes left 
in a telephone booth. Cross 
pleaded with police to cease 
their search for fear of his life. 
Authorities are continuing the 
manhunt under war-time 
security measures for the 

"The FLQ seeks in- 
dependence from Canada by 
means of violent revolution, has 
no mandate but terror, no 
policies but violence and no 
solutions but murder/' said 
iYime Minister Pierre Elliott 
ideau in a meeting of the 
house of Commons. 

Repercussions of the violence 
reached beyond the Canadian 
boundaries across the Atlantic 
to France where the French 
speaking minority of Canada 
have expressed their opinions. 
Newspapers in France carry 
editorials presenting the FLQ 
as "an oppressed people driven 
to desperate measures to gain 

By Carl Silverstein 


The general concensus 
presents sympathizers of the 
Quebec revolution for in- 
dependence as an oppressed 
people right in their ideas, but 
not condoned by their means. 
They are tied to France by 
history, language and culture, 
but living in an English 
speaking majority. 

The French government 
officially remains silent on this 
issue. Many wonder if any 
change has occurred since the 
time of De Gaulle's cry of "Vive 
Quebec libre"-Long live free 
Quebec, when he visited Canada 
in 1967. 

Apparently France had in- 
sight into the situation and 
chose her side then. Has 
President Georges Pompidou 
retained this feeling in the 
French government? No one 
knows, nor can anyone fortell 
how France's sudden renewal of 
relations with Ottowa will affect 
the situation. Ottowa dropped 
relations with France after De 
Gaulle's visit, showing disfavor 
on the French government's 
stand with Quebec. 

The revolution in Quebec is by- 
no means limited to the active 
FLQ terrorists. Many sym- 
pathizers of the cause, as feared 
by Canadian officials, are as yet 
silent. Canada must quickly 
subdue the FLQ if she still 
wishes to allow liberation by 
lawful means-that is, if 
liberation would be condoned by 
the members of such a 
parliamentary procedure. 
Sympathizers of the front will 
not remain silent forever. 

People of common feelings 
are often roused to unnatural 
actions when caught up in the 
enthusiasm of a revolution. This 
is evident in our own revolution 
when various colonists banded 
together after the 
Revolutionary War of 1876 
began, to follow the activists 
who started the revolution. 

First of all I would like to thank all the faithful for their help in 
getting the Muckraker back in the goodole Current Sauce (still 
sounds like a refuge from a jam jar). For those of you who don't 
remember or were not here last year, this column was devoted to 
commentary about school and according to my mother it was a 
pretty darn good column. This year I will hope once again to open a 
few ears and perhaps stimulate a mind or two. What is said here 
will not be written to please anyone and fact being fact, it doesn't 
matter to me if anyone agrees with me or not-if it causes people to 
think about what I have written. Any thoughts, even disagreeable 
ones, are preferrable to no thought at all. 

As for the SGA, I will not be able to comment on it as freely as I 
did last year, as I am part of this illustrious organization and my 
comments would perhaps cause more harm than good. However in 
this first Muckraker, I feel I owe it to the people who brought me 
back to at least give a short analysis of the SGA, as I see it-so here 

This year's SGA has fewer individual leaders than last years but 
also greater group harmony and cohesion. This government is 
made up of people like Killen, Thrash, and Baskerville to whom 
hard work has been more a pleasure than a duty. People, who 
although they may lack the personal charisma that was found in 
Student Government last year also lack the personal goals and 
because of this don't have to worry about next year's elections, but 
can concentrate on this year's work. These are the type of people 
who can make Student Government work as it should, and I stress 
workers, not leaders, for we all saw last year what can happen 
when there is no defined leadership. Workers, as I say, are needed 
and the SGA has them especially in an outstanding sophomore 
class (Harling, Pease, Hebert, Willis, etc.)-students who, unless 
something surprising happens, will be the people who will carry on 
the unfinished business that we leave and people who will provide 
the guidance the SGA will need in the future. 

I have kept one person 'till last, Mr. David Precht, the Student 
Body President. David was my running mate last year and the 
editor of the newspaper when I started this column. Since this time 
we have drifted apart, how far apart I don't know. Personally I 
don't like his politics, much of his humor, the way he handles 
certain situations, his breath or the cologne he wears. On top of this 
he is a sorry roommate and a bad driver. However, apart from my 
personal dislikes, I must say that David Precht is probably the best 
thing that has ever happened to the students at this university. No 
one cares more about John Doe, student, than does David nor will a 
student ever approach David with a problem and not be listened to. 
His work on student rights and his pushing for a constitutional 
convention are projects which will have a long-lasting positive 
effect on the university and the student body and I truly believe that 
Dave Precht will always be known as the president who not only 
cared the most, but also did the most. 

It has come to my attention recently that Coach Gossett has 
asked Campus Security to run students off the football field and 
practice field on the pretense that they are supposedly tearing up 
the field with their shoes. The only trouble with this reasoning is 
that not only does our team play on it, but our band stomps over it 
five days a week and then we let high school teams use it. Believe 
me, Coach, if all this hasn't destroyed it, some boys in tennis shoes 
surely won't hurt it. Anyway, who do you think they assess for your 
large athletic budget? I assure you it's not St. Mary's or Nat- 
chitoches High-it's those people you don't let use your field. That's 
not real grateful, Coach. 

Traffic Violations 

Many times as I have walked to classes or to 
the dining hall, I have noticed that most drivers 
fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians when 
they are crossing the streets. 

According to "Traffic Regulations," a booklet 
prepared by the Campus Traffic Committee, 
failing to give pedestrains the right of way in' 
crosswalks is a moving violation (Number VI, 
Subdivision 2 in the handbook). 

According to Campus Security, failure to yield 
to pedestrains comes under the heading of 
careless and reckless driving. Careless and 
reckless driving, according to the Natchitoches 
Police who handle moving traffic violations, is 
punishable by a fine of $25.50. 

Since the student must get to classes on time, I 
sincerely believe that he should have the right of 
way when crossing streets. But having the right 
of way is of no significance if drivers do not yield 
to the pedestrian. Laws made should be en- 

Perhaps this problem is due to the student's 
ignorance of the situation. In this case the 
ignorance is the fault of both the students and the 
security force. It is the fault of the students 
because the majority probably did not read the 
"Traffic Regulations" booklet. It is also the fault 
of the security force because the rule is not 
properly advertised on signs around the campus. 
I also believe that crosswalks should be more 
clearly marked. 

One Campus Security officer said that some 
students were not using the crosswalks. Students 
are reminded that they are protected only when 
walking in these marked areas. 

Any student who operates a vehicle on campus 
should become familiar with the traffic 
regulations in the handbook he was given at 
registration. Campus Security should enforce 
these regulations. 

School Spirit 

Once again it's time to travel to Shreveport for 
what is considered North western's biggest game 
of the year. As this time approaches, it brings to 
mind school spirit - or rather the lack of it. 

At each game that I have attended this 
semester, I have noticed the extreme lack of 1 
spirit and support for the team. When I stand up 
to yell and cheer the team, the people sitting] 
around me stare as if I were some kind of nut. j 
They just sit there as if nothing were happening ] 
and then they complain because thel 
cheerleaders stay on the Greek side of the 
stadium. I wonder what their reason could be. 

At the game I have also noticed that the only 
people who seem to be supporting the team are 
the cheerleaders, pom pon girls, the Greeks, and 
the NSU Band. Perhaps the remainder of the 
students are ashamed or just too lazy to get up 
and cheer the team on. 

The same situation seems to exist at the pep 
rallies. Again only the Greeks, cheerleaders, 
pom pon girls attend. I'll bet this situation really 
makes the team feel like we want them to win. 

Wreck Tech! 

I would like to take this opportunity to express 
the Current Sauce staff's support for the Demons 
-- not only in the Tech game but also throughout 
the rest of the season.

Dear Dr. Kilpatrick, 

I want to extend my ap- 
preciation for the excellent 
cafeteria service we receive at 
Iberville Dining Hall. The many 
kinds of food we can choose 
from, as well as the opportunity 
for seconds are among the 
many fine qualities of the food 
service. Many of my friends 
have stated that the food ser- 
vice at Iberville is superior to 
those of other schools which 
they have attended. I am 
grateful for this aspect of NSU.

Dear Editor: 

As I read the Current Sauce of 
Friday, Oct. the 16th, I see a 
statement made by a student 
Each speaker that says, "There are so many 
gripes I don't know where to 
begin." If I may, I would like to 
help her out. 

Apparently the Ad- 
ministration isn't aware of the 
parking problem on this 
campus, (Rapides Parking lot 
especially). The students, as I 
am, are very aware of this. Let 
me explain myself. You have 
the inconsiderates who park on 
inserting "formulate a committee tne curve taking up two parking 

spaces, and the one who parks 
crooked causing someone else 
to park crooked. But the one I 
really get a kick out of is the 
Bourgeois pig who parks behind 
another car so that he can't 
back out. The only way you can 
go is forward and 99 per cent of 
the time this is impossible. 

It seems as though the ad- 
ministration or Campus 
Security could do something 
about this. 

There have been numerous 
times that I have had to be 

proposals made by the Campus 
B e a u t if i c a t i o n Committer:. 
Seconded by Hoffstadt. Thrash 
moved to amend this motion by 

somewhere in a hurry only 
find myself blocked in. I han 
been late for many a| 
pointments because of this 

I feel that Campus Securit 
should turn their attention 
this problem instead of issuifl 
petty citations for such mind 
errors such as: parking on tt 
grass, backing in, or any of tl 
other violations mentioned < 
the little slip of paper called 
parking ticket. 

In my opinion Camp« 
Security is the richei 
organization on campus (mi 
more so than the Golden Nugg* 
in Las Vegas). If they have tl 
authority to control traffic the 
they should put their little heal 
together and figure out 

If I am not mistaken som 
money was allocated to sprea 
gravel on the lot. This is fit 1 
and dandy, but they should ha' 
used some of this money 
enlarge the lot. 

I, like many students, don 
appreciate getting up in A 
morning and finding scratch^ 
dents, and other mine 
damages caused by another d 
trying to back out of 
LEGITIMATE parking spa<* 
This occurs because sotf 
clown has parked behind him * 
other cars have been left in U> 
middle lane blocking him frc* 
all four sides. 

If I have to pay these pe$ 
tickets and those who park & 
this aren't fined, then I feel a 
though I am being taken 1° 

I write this letter in hopes th 8 
someone will take it under the" 
hat to do something about it

Demons Line-up for 

Northwestern State's Demons 
Lill count on upperclassmen to 
Iroduce the crucial defensive 
ilays tomorrow night when they 
May Louisiana Tech's Bulldogs 
It Shreveport, but freshmen 
nil also figure vitally in their 
luccess or failure. 
In announcing Nor- 
hwestern's starting lineup for 
he annual State Fair Classic, 
lead coach Glenn Gossett said 
j-ee freshmen will be in the 
jtarting defensive lineup - right 
Ind Ronnie Woodruff, left 
ackle Harold Clay and right 
,fety Travis Smith. 
Clay (6-1, 215) and Smith 
nade their initial starts last 
aturday as the Demons beat 
f>ensacola Navy 28-6 and 
ttatistically enjoyed their best 
efensive showing of the 
eason. The Navymen were 
nited to 257 yards total of- 

I With Gossett substituting 
Iberallv in a tuneup to Nor- 

thwestern's strongest defensive 
test to date this season, 
Woodruff saw extensive duty. 

"After watching Woodruff 
against Pensacola," said 
Gossett, "he deserves an op- 
portunity to start. Clay and 
Smith performed capably 
enough to stay in the lineup. 

"A coach normally doesn't 
like to go with freshmen, but 
they seem to be fairly sound for 
freshmen. And right now 
they're doing us the best jobs at 
their positions." 

In quarterback Ken Lantrip 
Tech's Bulldogs boosts the Gulf 
States Conference's leading 
passers. In fullback Mike Lord 
and halfback John Adams they 
have two runners who rank 
among the leading runners. 

Yardage-wise, Nor- 
thwestern 's defense ranks last 
in the GSC, giving up an 
average of 313.6 yards per 
game, but point-wise, it ranks 
second, allowing only 13.8 points

Upperclassmen Walter Edler, 
Larry Gaudet, Gordon

Hrapmann, Alton Geisendorff, 
Paul Tacker and Ronnie Bagley 
have been primarily respon- 
sible for the later figure. 
They've had help, though, and 
hopefully more is upcoming 
from Woodruff, Clay and Smith. 

Woodruff replaces junior 
letterman Greg Clark, who will 
still see plenty of duty, ac- 
cording to Gossett. Clay has 
succeeded Craig Tripp, another 
junior letterman who has been 
slowed with a shoulder injury. 
Tripp has recovered now and 
should challenge to regain his 
position. Smith replaces John 
Kelly, a freshman redshirt who 
remains on call. 

The Demons, who lead the 
GSC in total offense averaging 
393 yards and 23.6 points per 
game, plan no changes in their 
offensive lineup. 

That means Al Phillips and 
Paul Zoller will be the ends with 
Leonard Richardson, Don 
Miser, Leslie Robertson, Bobby 
Koncak and Gary McCrary 
comprising the interior line.

backs Tommy Wallis and

Gossett reports the Demons 
have put no special emphasis on 
this week's workouts and have 
attempted to prepare for the 
game in a low key approach, 
although the campus has been 
buzzing with spirited "Wreck 
Tech" activity. 

"We're trying out best to get 
ready without getting so high 
we won't be able to do anything 
when the game gets here," he 

The annual battle takes place 
at 7:30. KNOC will cover the 
festivities beginning at 7:15.

Public Health Service 

This space contributed as a public service. 

By Chic and Goober 

Hi! We are two happy little 
mice who wander around the 
NSU campus everyday. We are 
beginning to really know this 
place called Demonland. It is 
not unlike many other places we 
have been-its people are very 
friendly and helpful, and they 
try not to run over us very much 
at all. 

We have attended all the NSU 
football games, and we have 
found them very unusual to say 
the least. Have you ever gone to 
see the Demons play? If you 
have, then you are one of the 
very few. 

Let us tell you about a typical 
run-of-the-mill NSU football 

As we were dodging heavy 
shoes, we suddenly became 
aware that something very 
unusual was going on. Half of 
the stands were talking and the 
rest were bowing their heads. 
We always thought that prayer 
was a time of quietness. 

Then we saw a few people 
facing toward one end of the 
stadium, and we looked up to 
see what was going on. We saw 
the Star Spangled Banner being 
raised to fly over our country, 
and we wondered why everyone 
was not watching its ascent with 
their hands over their hearts. 
We wanted to put our hands 
over their mouths. 

Another unusual thing we 
have found was the lack of spirit 
shown by the supposedly 
Demon supporters. As the ball 
was kicked off, there were only 
a few people standing and even 

less cheering the team on. Some 
of the people who were standing 
up to yell turned pretty colors of 
red. We wonder if the reason 
could be that they were em- 
barrassed because they are the 
only ones yelling ! The ones who 
were standing slowly began 
dropping out because of a 
sudden feeling of loneliness. 

Then we wandered down on 
the field. We almost got 
trampled by a somersaulting 
cheerleader. We really liked 
them because they were 
showing their spirit. Our Demon 
cheerleaders were yelling so 
hard, but the response was so 
low that our mice ears could not 
even hear it. 

As we ran back under the 
stands, we were bombarded by 
a barrage of bottles and cans. 
As we staggered back into the 
stands, we noticed people with 
their backs to the football field 
hiding their cokes under a coat. 
The coke man walked up about 
this time with forty-seven 
cokes, and they were sold in a 
matter of seconds. Hmmm, 
wonder why everyone was so 
thirsty? They were not yelling 
so they could not be hot. 

Down in the front people were 
walking up and down. They 
looked like they were trying to 
keep the sidewalk warm or 
something. Maybe that type of 
Demon comes to the game just 
for appearances or social status 

Then it was half-time. We 
really go for half time shows. 
Our Demon half-time is really 
good, but the thing is you cannot 
see it or hear it. The sidewalk 
warmers are too much in the 

"Oh. Alma Mater here 
today "-and then the words 
slowly drift away. How sad that 
no Demon knows his own school 
song. We were so excited when 
the band struck up, and the 
students actually knew a song . . 
. M— I — C— K— E— Y M-O- 
U— S— E! 

But the saddest thing of] 
was that more people vm 
watching a fight in the stajl 
than the game. We found oj 
selves all alone because the I 
rows of bleachers around] 
were cleaned out to go wal 
the fight. 

By this glimpse 
Demonland, we have found 
most of the so called "Dem 
supporters" think of an N$ 
football game as a social evd 
rather than an athletic conti 
which they come to suppoi 
Even though the Big Tech gas

the thrown bottles and runnfl 
feet. We believe that we can] 
just as much to support f 
Demons at home as others a 
doing at the game. We think it) 
safer, too! 

On the field, we saw a mass of 
people who appeared to be a 
giant band. Somehow it seemed 
to be a practice session for them 
because again only a few people 
in the stands were paying at- 

When the game began again, 
some people were holding little 
boxes in their hands with a long 
wire and something stuck into 
their ears. For a while we 
thought they had a direct hook- 
up with the press box so they 
r^uld hear the game, but we 
soon learned that they were 
listening to LSU, Baylor, or 
Rice game and wishing that 
they were there instead of at 

The bluest blue chip of them all 

Danny Sullivan never made the 
baseball team. But because he's 
had the right training, you'd be sur- 
prised at the number of jobs open 
to him. 

The nicest part, of course, .is 
that another handicapped person is 
getting the most out of his life. 

However, there's something else 
good, too. 

Vocational rehabilitation pays. 

Every dollar spent to rehabilitate 
a person like him— someone with a 
physical or mental handicap— will 
increase his lifetime earnings by 
$35. (Thirty-five taxable dollars 

that he earns himself.) 

Which is why vocational rehabili- 
tation is good for everybody. 

We call our program HURRAH. 
Actually, HURRAH stands for "Help 
Us Reach & Rehabilitate America's 

When you realize there are five 
million handicapped people who 
can be helped by vocational reha- 
bilitation, you can see what a big 
job is ahead. 

If you want to know more about 
the job that vocational rehabilita- 
tion is doing, and the rich dividends 
it pays, write to HURRAH, Box 

1200, Washington, D.C. 20013. 

Ask for "Rehabilitation— A Blue 
Chip Investment." It's free. 

Then if anyone ever asks you if 
rehabilitation is worth the cost, 
you'll know what we at HURRAH 
have found out: 

From every angle, a human be- 
ing is the bluest blue chip invest- 
ment there is.

gram of Rehabilitation Services.

Katherian Hepburn. This play is 
Historical Comedy, based on 
the life of Henry II, with his 
queen and his sons. The story 
takes place in 1183, the scene is 
in his court in Chinon, France at 
Christmas Time. The people in 
this play, their character and 
passions while consistent with 
the facts we have are fictitious.

play it opens up 30 years after 
the Beckett murder. Henry III 
is dead and Henry II needs to 
choose another successor to the 
throne. He must choose between 
Geoffrery, John or Richard the 
lion Hearted. 

In the local production of it a 
unit set will be used. It will 
consist of towers, arches and 
columns. Special costumes are 
being designed by Louella

then welcomed and began their

which they described as "just

"Close To You," "More," "A 
Portrait Of My Love," and 
"Bridge Over Troubled Water." 

The first half of the show was 
fairly serious with much of the

attract and hold an entire 
audience's attention, as 
strongly as this one did. Song 
after song was received with 
spontaneous ovations. 

As the second half of the show 
began, it seemed to be an en- 
tirely different show They 
came with a more convinced 
attitude that their listeners 
were really enjoying them. 

They seemed to 'dive' right 
into the hearts of the audience, 
and really put everything they 
had in them into their singing. 
These interchangeable parts all 
combined perfectly in harmony 
and served to present a very 
unique show. 

They did not stay mainly with 
a ballad type song, for which 
they are well known, but instead 
sang popular, country and 
western and classical material. 
Each area of music was 
presented in their own defined, 
successful style. 

The trio encouraged audience 
participation through clapping 
and volunteers who sang with 

Tony went out in the 
audience, stopping here and 
there inviting people to sing 
with him. He went all the way 
up in the stands where he found 
a little girl to whom he sang. 

The feature of true sincerity 
may seem as just a trite thing in 
a large scale concert, but it is 
only one of the many qualities 
that a group like these men 
possess as great singers. 

They continued to further 
impress their listeners as they 
changed constantly from humor 
to seriousness in song. Each one 
was very definitely defined and 
each was in good taste. One was 
never bored because of the 
everchanging mood of the. 

After receiving a come-back, 
they honored requests from the 
audience. Among these were 
"Cherish", and "It Hurts So 

Their greatest contrast in 
their songs was seen in the last 
two songs they sang. "Dixie," a 
fast swinging song, was hailed 

Potpourri Retakes 

The Potpourri photographer 
will be on the NSU campus 
Thursday, Nov. 5. to take pic- 
tures of undergraduate and 
graduate students, according to 
Gayle Palmer, yearbook editor. 

He will be located 'n Rm. 242 
of the Student Union. Hours for 
picture-taking will be from 8:30 
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Many students were not 
available to the photographer 
during Fall registration, 
Palmer said. Also, some pic- 
tures made then are not usable 
in the yearbook because of some 
fault, such as eye* being closed. 
In these cases, the students are 

being notified and asked to 
appear for re-takes. 

Those students whose pic- 
tures, made during 
registration, turned out all 
right, are ineligible for re-takes, 
Palmer said. 

The editor and her staff are 
urging students whose pictures 
were not made during 
registration to have them made 
Nov. 5. 

The packets of pictures made 
Nov. 5 will be available within a 
month for students to purchase. 
Miss Palmer said the date and 
place will be announced.

"The Lettermen' closed their 
1970 NSU performance with 
"Going Out Of My Head." 

When asked why they decided 
upon this 'soft-blending' mode 
of music, which they are so 
well-known for, to sing, they 
replied, "We wanted to sing 
music that would appeal to 
everyone every age. Good 
music never dies." 

They continued by saying, 
"What we hope to do is to be 
able to one day say that we have 
lasted longer than any other 
group with hit songs. And we 
hope we will continue to do so."

singing, Jim laughed and said, 
"Our first record was a hard 
rock one called "That's My 
Desire." On the other side we 

had a Ballad which the disc 
jockeys started playing more. It 
was called, "The Way You Look 
Tonight." It sold more than a 
million copies.. 

Then their style of pattern 
began to change with the song 
"When I Fall In Love," and 
"Come Back Silly Girl." The 
group's first album, "A Song for 
Young Love," was a number 
one best seller on the music 
charts for 58 straight weeks. 

When asked what they 
thought of today's generation of 
youth, Tony replied, "They are 
not any more different than we 
were, except that they are more 
aware of world problems, and 
not so much of the trivial things 
that we were concerned about." 

As for their plans in the future 
they stated," We will continue 
making records and we hope to 
get started on a T.V. series. In 
15-20 years, after all the groups 
which are popular now kind of 
fade away, we still hope to be 

So, as it was evidenced 
throughout their perofrmance, 
they are still very popular with 
totally all ages and all types of 
people. And if this concert was 
at all typical of their desires in 
music, they are indeed destined 
for still greater success.

Representatives Enjoy 
Northwestern 's 'Crow' 

By Vicki Prather 

Jim Dowling, Tech SGA 
President, and S. X. Lewis, 
Vice-president of Student Af- 
fairs, were proudly escorted 
into the Student Union ballroom 
Wednesday, October 28 by 
David Precht and Dr. 
Kilpatrick to enjoy one of the 
most scrumptious meals of 
their lives. 

The Tech guests were greeted 
by a large crowd. Applause 
resounded from the ceiling as

Jerome Hines, the first 
performer in Northwestern 's 
Dramatic Artist Series, will be

Hines, one of the leading 
basses of the Metropolitan

Mephistopheles and for the title 
role of Boris Godounov. 
Because he specializes in 
dramatized recital, the second 
portion of his performance here 
will be in costume using full 
operatic treatment. 

Having been with the 
Metropolitan since 1946, Hines 
has sung over 30 different roles. 
After a recent performance, 
Paul Hume of the Washington 
Post wrote: '"The sound of 
Jerome Hines' bass voice is 
something in which, for sheer 
physical beauty, one can revel

LISL Advisor 

At Meeting 

By Myra Joleen Smiley 

The NSU Chapter of LISL 
held its weekly meeting last 
Tuesday night in room 320 of 
the Student Union. It was an- 
nounced that Mr. Dave Milner 
of the Political Science 
Department is the 
organization's advisor. 

Eleven students will 
represent the NSU Chapter of 
LISL at the state meeting to be 
held on November fifth thru 
eighth. The two senators are 
Robert Fleege and Don 
Couvillion. The seven 
representatives are .Myra 
Joleen Smiley, Gregg O'Quinn, 
Wayne McConnell, Ben Price. 
Bob Palo. Mark Fleege. and 
Michael Levine. The two 
alternates are Mike Price and 
Vince Giaco These 
Congressional Representatives 
will introduce legislation from 
the local LISL chapter and will 
work as members of various 
committees during the thro 
day legislative session at the 
Capital House in Baton Rouf>e. 

of the game NSU 20 - LTU 17 
was also painted on the sign. 

To the left of Dean Lewis 
stood a plastic crow on a 
column. The sign in front of it 
had LTHS, which stood for La. 
Tech High School and NSU. 

After the guests were in- 
troduced President Kilpatrick 
welcomed them. 

President Kilpatrick stated, 
"You are looking at someone 
who knows how they feel. I am 
sincerely happy to welcome you 
two gentlemen this year. It's 
nice to be on the winning end 
and we hope it will be an annual 
affair at NSU. 

Precht, then greeted them 
with a proud statement, "I was 
never worried about the out- 
come of the game. Next year 
you will be able to see a repeat 
performance of the event." 

Debbie Wallace, State Fair 
Queen; and Johnny Hebert, 
SGA Parliamentarian; were 
acting as the host and hostess of 
the event. 

Hebert explained, "We tried 
to kill you a crow, but the crows 
must have heard NSU beat 
Tech, because they were hard to 
find. All the crows left for 
Northeast La. So I killed a 
carron crow instead, or rather 
what is known as a buzzard." 

Then they placed "Demon 
Bibs" on them which read, "We 
lost," and then proceeded to 
serve them their dinner. The 

meat was placed in foil lined 
trashcan lids and was served 
with a red pitchfork. 

They then gave them some 
paper and said, "This is in case 
you want to wrap some up and 
take it home." 

Dowling and Dean Lewis' 
expression could be described 
as acute discomfort. 

As Dowling got up to speak, 
he clumsily removed his bib and 
stated, "Thank you for the 
delightful dinner. We want to 
congratulate you on your 16th 
win. Take care of the banner 
because it will be back at Tech 
next year." 

Dean Lewis replied, "The 
crow eating is unusual to me. In 
the future lets put a new flag up 
for next year with out new- 
University names on it. We can 
have a ceremony and burn the 
old one." 

When asked what he thought 
of the game, Dowling replied, 
"It was a great game. NSU won 
and won fairly. It was 
anybody's game. This crow 
ceremony is fun because it's 
ridiculous. We look forward to 
having NSU at Tech next year. 

With a scarlet red face he 
ended by saying, "We didn't 
have dinner, but the chicken 
was good." 

Dean Lewis finished by ex- 
claiming, "I've enjoyed it, but I 
was as nervous as a cat." 

Students Apply 
For Financial Aid 

By Janet Johnson 

Approximately 35 per-cent 
ormore of the students at North- 
westeren State University 
receive financial aid assistance 
according to Dr. Martin of the 
Financial Aid Department. This 
assistance may be given in 
either the form of a loan or a 

A student, in order to receive 
financial assistance must fill 
out and return an application 
form by a given date. The form 
must be filled out completely 
and returned to the Financial 
Aid Office by the deadlines of 
June 1st. for aid for the fall 
semester; November 1st for 
spring semester or April 1st for 
aid for the summer. 

An application may be turned 
in late or incomplete but a 
student will not be guaranteed 
his application being processed 
in time. 

Eleven hundred students 
work each month all receiving 
the same amount of pay per 
hour. Around 450 receive loans. 
The information on the ap- 
plication form is the basis for 
the amount of the loan. 

The Financial Aid Depart- 
ment is attempting to satisfy 
two criteria when placing a 

student in a job.. First, the 
student must be satisfied with 
the placement and secondly, the 
employer must be satisfied with 
the student worker. An em- 
ployer may ask for the same 
student worker to be reassigned 
to his office and if the student is 
eligible he may be placed on 
this employers staff for more 
than one semester. 



Packets of student pic- 
tures made during Fall 
registration will be available 
for purchasing in Rm. 242, 
Student Union, Tuesday, 
Nov. 3. 

Gayle Palmer, Potpourri 
editor, said this week that 
many students did not buy 
their packets when they 
were available Oct. 19-21, 
and have requested another 
chance to buy them. 

The editor explained that 
each student's packet 
contains 23 prints of his-her 
photograph, including one 5 
x 7. 


Page 2, The CURRENT SAUCE Friday October 30, 1970 

A Look at SGA 

Hie Student bodies of Nor- 
thwestern and the other school 
under the State Board of 
Education were dealt an insult 
to their maturity in last week's 
Current Sauce. 

That insult came under the 
heading, "Rules of Conduct," 
and originated apparently from 
an august body. Why is it that 
we, the students of Louisiana 
must continuously be treated as 

Louisiana students have 
consistently shown that they 
can approach problems both 
rationally and peacefully. In my 
opinion there was no need to 
hand down that mandate 
containing rules of personal 
conduct, sanctions, and that 
statement of campus integrity. 

It would seem that such an 
asinine set of statements could 
only generate a greater feeling 
of alienation from the "powers 
that be" and possibly stir up 
trouble that doesn't now exist. 

This is not to say that the 
State Board should not have 
handed down those rules 
(although every point has 
already been covered in the 
code of conduct printed in the 
Demon Handbook), but rather it 
is saying that they are written 
in a tone of an unveiled threat. 

We are tired of being scolded, 
talked down to, and threatened 
as though we were errant high 
schoolers. (Incidently, both 
faculty and staff members were 
included in the sanctions and 
rules of conduct.) 

In other words, the rules 
expressed were rather obvious - 
- everyone knows it is wrong to 
steal, set fires, or use firearms 
and explosives, so why must it 
be printed in big bold print as 
though students were expected 
to break those rules? 

The article also contains a 
few inherent contradictions, 


notably one found under the 
heading, "Statement of Campus 
Integrity." The first section 
reads, "The State Board is 
unwavering in its support of 
academic freedom and of the 

academic responsibilities 
concomittant therewith." Why 
then, if they are so "unwavering 
in their support of academic 
freedom," were they possessed 
to so strongly express that list of 

Aside from the ambiguity of 
those rules, it is the tone to 
which I mainly object. If the 
State Board and other state 
officials and institutions would 
treat us like mature, respon- 
sible individuals, then we would 
no doubt continue to act like 
mature, responsible in- 

There is one more topic I 
would like to touch upon this 
week: the "Free Speech Alley." 
Tuesday, Jack Hoffstadt 
moderated the first Alley of the 
year. The turnout was poor, yet 
I feel that something was very 
definitely accomplished. 

Several problems concerning 
the structures of SGA, AMS, 
and AWS, women's freedoms 
and administrative attitudes 
were aired, and I think ac- 
ceptable answers were 
provided, both by SGA mem- 
bers and by other interested 

This is potentially a very good 
avenue of expression ... IF 
students would only take ad- 
vantage of it. I realize that 
publicity for the event was poor, 

but it will improve. I only hope 
that participation on the part of 
the student body will sub- 
sequently improve. The next 
weekly Alley will be Tuesday at 
12:30 p.m. It will be rewarding 
to those who attend.

Here At NSU 

Marijuana On Campus 

By Charles Herring 

Thirty percent of Northwestern students may be steady users of 
marijuana, according to a recent poll conducted by the writer. 

Twenty-five students, who were selected by random sample, 
were asked if they had experimented with marijuana or hashish. 
The students were promised that their names would not be 

Ten students replied that they had experimented with marijuana, 
and seven students admitted being regular users. 

Since this percentage was so high, another 25 students were 
questioned. Nine of these said they had used marijuana, and eight 
admitted being regular users. 

The users were then asked to estimate the percentage of grass 
(marijuana) smokers on campus. Their estimates ranged from 20 
percent to 45 percent. 

This estimate may seem high to officials and those not familiar 
with the "underground," but as one user said: 

"You would not believe the number who turn on. When I first 
came up here (Natchitoches) I hid my grass from my roommate. 
But come to find out, he was also a "head" (user). I even know 
people who have~smoked in the Student Union just to see if they 
could get away with it." 

Exaggerated anti-marijuana propaganda, according to students, 
is what started many of them on drugs. 

"My parents told me how dangerous grass was, and I believed 
them," related one user. "I was told how you could freak out, lose 
your sense of reality, and begin seeing all kinds of weird things. But 
one day I caught one of my friends smoking. Instead of acting like a 
freak, he was just sitting there writing a term paper. So I tried it, 
and it had no effect on me. After the fifth try I began to feel 
something, but it was nothing like my parents had told me. I 
decided then that I could no longer believe anything they said," he 

Most users are especially critical of such untruthful propaganda. 

"I use the drug, so I am much more familiar with its effects than 
these guys who know nothing about grass, yet who put out most of 
the anti-grass stuff," said one user. "When they begin preaching I 
sit back and laugh. I might not know all there is to know about 
week, but I know from experience that many of the things they say 
are lies," he added sarcastically. 

Since students usually know more about drugs than their parents, 
these false attacks on marijuana may be dangerous, according to 
many drug educators. 

Grouping of marijuana with LSD or harder drugs is not only 
ridiculous, but dangerous, according to Dr. Frederick Meyers of 
the University of California Medical School. 

Most students are indifferent to the use of marijuana on campus. 
Only three of the 31 non-users in the survey believe that marijuana 
users should be prosecuted. 

"Students who use marijuana are helping the Mafia," stated one 

"Students who use grass are not only hurting themselves, but are 
also breaking the law and they should be arrested," another 
student said. 

The penalty for simple possession of marijuana in Louisiana for 
first offenders is one year in prison or a $500 fine, or both. This is 
harsh when compared with the Nebraska penalty of 7 days in jail, 
but mild when compared with Texas where first offenders may 
receive life imprisonment. 

A local dealer explained that marijuana reaches the individual 
student through a complicated underground network. 

He explained that the plant is harvested by farmers in Mexico, 
South America, or isolated parts of the United States. These far- 
mers dry the plants and separate the useless male plant from the 
female plant, which contains the drug THC. The flowers are used 
for making hashish, a much more potent drug. 

These farmers, the dealer said, sell their products by the pound 
to a large dealer. This dealer divides the marijuana into keys (2% 
lbs. ) and sells these to another dealer. This dealer then returns to 
the United States where he sells the drug to a regional dealer in 
quantities of pounds or lids (1 oz.). The local dealer sells his 
product to the student in quantities of lids or matchboxes. 

According to the dealer, marijuana, which sells for $5 a pound in 
South America, normally sells for $15 an ounce in this area. 

Many of the large dealers are connected with the mafia, ac- 
cording to a recent article in Life magazine. 

The dealer went on to explain that complications may arise when 
the grass has been coated with LSD or Heroin, a trick used by some 
pushers to recruit new addicts. 

A pusher is one who sells hard drugs, whereas a dealer sells grass 
and hashish.

What Do You Think 

By Dorothy Jarzabek 

The question was : Why do you 
think there is no National or 
state political interest on this 

"State and national politics? 
There isn't even any interest in 
campus politics. There is too 
much emphasis on getting a 
diploma to get a job to make 

money, and not enough on 
getting an education to learn to 
work with other people to build 
a better world." — Rinkie 
Williamson, Leesville, 

"The students seem to be for 
the most part apathetic in 
regard to politics on campus. 
This is sad because we are 
living in a state where a youth- 
ful voice in politics is needed. In 

short, Louisiana's future 
leaders are sitting around 
complaining about the old ones 
who refuse to retire. Where is 
progress?" — Ken Brown, 
Shreveport, La. 

"It's so easy to live a happy 
life at Northwestern and forget 
the depressing things hap- 
pening outside. You live in your 
own plastic world here." — 
Linda Fawceth, Shreveport, 

"Primarily the lack of in- 
terest is derived from their 
environment. Very few of their 
parents vote,for example. Some 
of the research I have been 

doing shows that approximately 
the same percentage of students 
vote in the SGA elections as 
their parents vote in political 
elections."— Mrs. Nahm, Social 

"I think most of the people 
here are too wrapped up. Not in 
themselves, but they have got it 
too good. They're apathetic 
because national and state 
politics have not yet hit them. 
It's like a disease. You aren't 

going to cry until it hits you. 
Students aren't reading 
anything either, and the 
teachers suppress them. Have 
you ever tried to write on the 
Vietnam war or

News And Views 


S i n g 1 e t a r y 
SGA Secretary 

A controversy has arisen over 
news broadcasts to GIs over- 
seas through the American 
Forces Radio and Television 
Service (AFRTS). Critics- 
including a substantial number 
of present and former employes 
of AFRTS-charge that its news 
programs are sometimes 
subjected to censorship. 

Defense officials say 
relatively little management of 
news takes place, and what does 
occur is justifiable on grounds 
of military security or national 

Broger says some types of 
censorship are justifiable and 
necessary. Consideration must 
be given to material which 
might offend the host country 
and jeopardize overseas 
AFRTS stations. 

Some cases of news sup- 
pression have been clearly 
documented. Orders to kill 
stories over the entire AFRTS 
network have come directly 
from the Pentagon. John 
Christian Broger runs AFRTS 
from a Pentagon office. 

Broger blames any 
"mistakes" that have occurred 
on inexperienced newsmen and 
overzealous officers who 
exercise control over the 
AFRTS operation. 

Better excuses have been 
made for absence from classes. 
"Mistakes" is a good word that 
must be in the army manual 
labeled 'Double Talk and Cover- 
up Operations.' People make 
mistakes, true, but overzealous 
officers and inexperienced 
newsmen are never allowed to 

By Carl Silverstein 

conduct important matters 
without a final okay from higher 
up the line. Even in the business 
world any good business man 
never allows company policy 
decisions to be made by just 
anyone on his staff, unless he is 
absolutely sure the man 


One tends to question further 
"mistakes". Little 
management on justifiable 
grounds only is the Defense 
Department's statement. It is a 
universal consistancy that no 
complicated organization can 
ever function and serve its 
member's wishes without a lot 
of management. The justifiable 

grounds for censorship in 
AFRTS comes from its 
management, the Pentagon. 
The Pentagon can justify 
anything it pleases, and an- 
swers to no one-except the 
people, if and when they care 
enough to do something about it. 

No one can deny the need to 
prevent host countries from 
being offended by news that 
may be broadcast overseas. But 
this was not the case in point 
that Broger argued in a two 
hour interview. He shied away 
from the point that someone is 
just playing the old game of 
"Politics" with a few new rules. 

The news that has actually 
been suppressed in recent 
programs did not jeopardize 
relationships with our host 
countries. If it had relationships 
with host countries would be 
broken now. The news became 
available to anyone in the 
serviceman's own publication 
and several other sources. 

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie Brock . . . Editor 

Last week members from a certain church, 
whose name I will not mention, were on the NSU 
campus selling candy in order to raise funds to 
start a private, segregated school in the Jena 

Few, if any, of the ladies selling the candy 
stated their purpose for doing so and some of the 
ladies engaged in the selling were not members 
of the church. 

Since Northwestern is a state-supported in- 
stitution, I believe that this act was in definite 
violation of the doctorine of separation of church 
and state which is supposedly practiced in all 
forms of democratic government, not to mention 
the violation of the integration laws of the land. 
The act was also in disagreement with the 
vending machine contract that the university 
holds with Allen and Allen. 

In the "Rules of Personal Conduct" set forth 
by the State Board of Education and published in 
last week's CURRENT SAUCE, the division of 
"Statement of Campus Integrity," statement 
number 2 reads, " . . .The expression of political 
opinions and viewpoints will be those of in- 
dividuals and not of institutions, since the official 
adoption of any political position, whether 
favored by majority or minority, tends to sub- 
stitute one-sided commitment for the continuing 
search for truth." If the administration gave 
permission for these ladies to sell candy, 
knowing their intentions, it would appear to 
favor segregation. It would therefore violate the 
"Rules of Personal Conduct" by showing favor, 
since it would seem to be the viewpoint of an 
institution and not an individual. 

I do not know if the ladies received permission 
to sell the candy on campus or if they did receive 
permission, where it came from, but I do believe 
that what they did was wrong and I also believe 
that steps should be taken to prevent similar 
happenings in the future. 

This weekend, here at Northwestern, a con- 
stitutional convention will be held to revise the 
current NSU Student Body Constitution. The 
revision committee will be headed by David 
Precht, student body president, and will be 
composed of interested students. 

It is time for the constitution to be revised. In 
some cases it is contradictory and in many 
places it is vague on certain issues. There are 
also things in the constitution that need to be 
changed completely, things that should be left 
out, and things that should be added in order to 
bring the constitution up to date. 

One of the things that the constitution does not 
provide is representation for graduate students. 
The constitution states, "Membership in this 
organization shall include all regularly enrolled 
undergraduate students of Northwestern State 
University of Louisiana." The constitution 
makes no mention of representatives for the 
graduate students, who, after all, are students 
here under the same governing body and subject 
to the same rules and therefore are entitled to 

Getting representation for graduate students 
will be only one of the things to be discussed 
Saturday at the convention. It is hoped that in- 
terested students will attend the meeting or let 
their opinions be known.

TKE Welcomed Their Brothers, The Lettermen 


At the Alpha Zeta meeting 
held Tuesday night, Tri Sigmas 
made plans for money-raising 
projects and began making 
preparations for Nor- 
thwestern 's Homecoming. 

The pledges gave the 
members a Halloween party 
Thursday night, and provided 
for all Sigma Sigma Sigma 's a 
most enjoyable time. The 
pledges are to be commended 
for their hard work in 
straightening the Tri Sigma 
house. They spent earnest hours 
painting the inside and making 
the house more attractive. 

Tri Sigma has begun 
something new. Each week, an 
Alpha Zeta member is to be 
recognized as "member of the 
week". Margaret Kovar and 
Annette Bourgeoise have held 
this honor since it first started, 
and Tri Sigma is proud to give 
this position to Becky Bates this 


The brothers of Nu Chapter

awarded the "Tech Weekend 
Spirit Stick". 

The activities in Shreveport 
surrounding the event, began 
Friday night with a dance, 
featuring the "Rocking 
Roadrunners", in the downtown 
Elks Club in Shreveport. The 
dance was enjoyed by many 
visiting Alumni, in Shreveport 
for the ballgame. 

Saturday afternoon, the 
brothers and their dates at- 
tended the pep rally at Shreve 
City, and Saturday evening, 
boarded chartered buses for the 
ride to State Fair Stadium for

Tech weekend was a complete 
success for the brothers of 
Theta Chi. Our chapter played 
the Centenary chapter in 
football and we won. We 
received a most impressive 
trophy. This game is to become 
an annual event between the 
two chapters. Now we hope our 
victory over Centenary will 
inspire our team in victory this 
week in intramural football. 

This weekend a Halloween 
party is planned at one of the 
brother's home. Bobby 
Chalerand has been elected as 
our new secretary. The pledges

Two parties and a great NSU- 
Tech game highlighted the last 
weekend's activities for the Sigs 
as SGA President David Precht 
had fleeting thoughts of eating 
crow before the last few 
minutes of the game. 

No parties are scheduled for 
this weekend, but brother Dale 
Thibodeaux will have his annual 
"Coon-Ass" Barbeque in 

Gueydan during the NSU- 
McNeese weekend Nov. 7-8. 

In intramural activity, the 
Sigs were 5-1 at press time. 


The frater of Epsilon Upsilon 
chapter salute the Tech Tekes 
of Beta Zeta chapter for their 
spirit of brotherhood and 
sportsmanship which made our 
State Fair dance a big success. 

Plans for this week include 
arrival of the Lettermen as 
TKE will welcome three of its' 
most prominent fraternity 

TKE welcomes new pledges 
Gary Harper, Charles Porche, 
Jeff Vote and Bill Walker. 
Harper, Porche, and Vote are 
the "Demons of Tomorrow" on 
the NSU Scout Team. Walker is 
a member of the nationally 
ranked Black Knights drill 

Belated birthday wishes and a 
Happy Halloween go out to the 
Ladies of Delta Zeta Sorority as 
they continue to be leaders in all 
phases of campus activity and 
contributors to a better Greek 
system at Northwestern. 

Congratulations to Paul 
"Billo" Piazza upon his 
marriage to Julie Bott and to 
pledge Ronnie Woodruff on his 
fine game played against Tech 
this weekend. 

As the shadow of the Three 
Columns once again falls over 
State Fair Stadium and the 
Demon supremacy restored, 
TKE stresses to the student 
body to keep up the spirit that 
was shown as NSU wrecked 
Tech. Thus TKE sez GO 
DEMONS, Beat Jacksonville!!

The Epsilon Beta Chapter or 
Delta Zeta held a Founders' 
Day Dinner at the DZ Lodge on 
October 26. The dinner was 
attended by alumni as well as 
actives and pledges. 

The Pledges have announced 
that the actives are in for a big 
surprise this week! The DZ's 
Pledges threw a fantastic 
Halloween Party. There were 
fun and games that the actives 
have not seen before. You might 
say that they were scared a 
little but that's Halloween. 

Delta Zeta's carwash is this 
Saturday at the Kappa Sigma 
House. We will be washing cars 
from nine till two. Stop by 
Saturday and we will be more 
than happy to give you a good 
wash job for the price of one 
dollar which is just four 
quarters ! 
Good Luck DEMONS! 


The brothers of Pi Kappa Phi

Jacksonville will be out to

down by Northwestern last year 
and at the same time keep a 
perfect record intact. The 
Gamecocks have rolled over 
four straight opponents, in- 
cluding nationally known Troy 
State 55-10 two weeks ago. 

Similar Attacks 

The Gamecocks are similar to 
Northwestern in that they are 
primarily a running team with 
sprint-out passing. Freshman 
halfback Lynn Callahan leads

carries-almost seven yards a

Walter Edler: All-American 
In the Eyes of Opposition 

With 10 starters returning 
from last campaign's defensive 
squad, the Gamecocks have 
limited opponents to only 11 
points a game and in the 

Last year the Gulf States 
Conference produced a bonaf ide 
ail-American in La. Tech 
quarterback Terry Bradshaw - 
and Northwestern opponents 
are convinced the league has 
another ail-American in 
defensive tackle Walter Edler. 

Everyone knows that 
Bradshaw's bag was bom- 
barding the opposition with his 
passes. But Edler prefers other 
hobbies - like roaming in the 
enemy backfield for the foot- 
ball, or busting through a 
double-team block to make a 
crucial tackle. 

Although linebackers have 
more chances to make tackles, 
Edler has had a hand in 
dragging down 70 runners in six 
games to rank second in the 
league in that department. But 
more important the Demon 
dandy has recorded 25 tackles 
behind the line of scrimmage. 

NSU Coach Glenn Gossett is 
quick to admit that Edler, a 6- 
foot-2, 220-pound senior from 
New Orleans-Warren Easton, 
keys the Demon defense. 
"Walter uses his quickness and 
speed to move off blockers and 
make the big plays for us" 
Gossett commented. 

Gossett, who coached the 
defensive line at SMU before 
coming to Northwestern in 
January of 1967, adds, "Edler is 
equally tough in stopping the 
run and providing a strong pass 
rush. He's got good ability and 
he knows how to use it." 
Last Saturday night against 
Louisiana Tech, Edler made the

highest grade (88 percent) of his 
career in helping the Demons to 
a 20-17 victory. He made 13 
tackles, including three behind 
the line of scrimmage, and 
intercepted a pass against 

Northeast Louisiana Coach 
Dixie White was most im- 
pressed with Edler. "He did an 
excellent job against us," said 
White. There's always one or 
two players that stand out on a 
team and Edler sticks out for 
Northwestern. He's got real 
good lateral movement and he's 
real tough when you're running 
at him." 

Stephen F. Austin Coach 
Travis (Shorty) Hughes also is 
a believer in Edler. "We didn't 
have anyone that could handle 
him. We play against some good 
tackles in our league, but none 
have been as good as Edler. 
He's terrific - what else can you 

Possessing 4.9 speed in the 40- 
yard dash, Edler made a 
season's high 18 tackles against 

Pensacola Navey. He also had 
his season high of nine tackles 
behind the line of scrimmage in 
that game. 

NSU defensive line Coach 
George Doherty, a veteran of 23 
years in the coaching ranks, 
labels Edler as one of the best 
three tackles he's ever tutored. 
The other two were Tom Hinton 

(La. Tech, 1957) and Kenneth 
Back (Minden High, 1954-55). 
Hinton was a little all-American 
and Beck, who later starred at 
Texas A&M, was second team 
all- American. 

"Walter is as quick a boy as 
I've ever coached at that 
position," commented Doherty. 
"He's got the ability to come up 
with the big play whenever we 
need it." 

"Edler has got to be the best 
down lineman in the league," 
Doherty adds, "He's been all- 
GSC twice and he's having his 
best season this year. I think 
he's an all- American."

Ware with 412 yards on 88 tries. 
Last Week against La. Tech, 
Pool weaved for 106 yards, 
including a 63 yard touchdown 
dash, and was good on eight of

Pass receiving is in the sure 
hands of Al Phillips, who has 
nabbed 12 for 209 yards and a 
touchdown. Besides averaging 
17.4 yards per catch, Phillips 
leads the conference with 10

The question for next 
weekend is not if you are going 
to hunt but rather what are you 
going to hunt. 

The deer and duck seasons 
both open Saturday Nov. 7, and 
hunters are now going full speed 
ahead getting everything ready. 

The first part of the two way 
split season for ducks runs from 
the seventh to Nov. 29. 

All reports from the northern 
states indicate that there are 
more ducks this year than any 
year in the last decade. Whether 
the ducks are here when the 
season opens remains to be seen 
but you can expect every 
medium to large body of water 
in the state will sound like a 
miniature Vietnam. 

Check the hunting regulations 
for the area you will be hunting 
for they differ in different 
places. If you plan to hunt on 
Toledo Bend or anywhere in 
Texas be sure to check the 
regulations because Texas is 
using the point bag system and 
the daily limit depends on the 
kind of ducks you kill. 

Louisiana has a limit of six 
with two mallards included. 
Duck stamps are needed for 
hunters over 16. 


The early still hunt season 
opens Nov. 7 and is open til Nov. 
15. This is a special buck only 
season which allows a hunter to 
try for his buck before the 
woods are disturbed by the 
baying of deer hounds. The wise 
hunters will take advantage of 
this nine-day season, realizing 
that in this way they can ef- 
fectively increase the length of 
their hunting season. 

Archers, most of whom are 
gun hunters too, will already 
know where the deer are 

because they have been hunting 
since Oct. 3. You can know 
where the deer are before youj 
go out opening day if you scoutj 
the area you plan to hunt] 

Of course all hunters look for 1 
tracks but there are other signs 
which may help you more. | 
When you find a deer trail, 
follow it a few hundred yards. If J 
you don't see any other tracks! 
then you are probably on the!

through the woods and may not! 
come back that way for two! 
weeks. After you have found a I 
recent trail that is used byl 
several deer, follow it looking! 
for a place to build a blind or] 
hide in natural surroundings. Ifl 
possible, pick a place where youj 
can be above the deer and at a I 
place where several trails! 
converge. Such a place might bel 
a crossing at a fence. Look fori 
hair on the fence and leaves that!

they jumped. 

Another good area to hunt in I 
is where you find a place where! 
deer bed down at night. They] 
will probably return to that 
vicinity and if you have picked a 
good hiding sopt, you should 
have a deer. 

Sad is the story of the hunter | 
who scouts his hunting grounds i

where he knows the deer will be, ' 
and misses because he didn't | 
check his gun to make sure it] 1 
was shooting properly. If you I

Great Pumpkin " 
Wakes NSU Scene 

By Vicki Prather 

All is quiet at 2 ajn. in the 
dorm. The doors are locked, and 
the windows are shut. The 
kiddies are all tucked in their 

When all of a sudden, there 
comes a jingling-a jangling 
from afar. Hmmm, me thinks it 
could be Santa. But no, he went 
out with high heels and crew 
cuts. Ah ha, I've got it. It's a 

panty raid! But as I stumble to 
the window, I realize that there 
is no one there; much less 
anyone calling for panties. 

Then I decide that the sound is 
coming from the hall. Ever so 
quietly, I creep to the door. 
Then I hear it-giggling and 
snickering. Then I have it. My 
suitemates have come in from 
their drunk. Tech weekend is 
just now wearing off. 

But no, I am wrong. Within a 
flash, the door is swung open, 
and there stands none other

|Poetry Passages 

Cry Behind Your Smile 

By Debbie Greene 

A vast, long silence, loss. 
Wailing in the distance. 
You can hear- 
You can see. 
It's hurting me. 

To loose what was yours- 
Yes, the pain. 

Yet worse to never know if was yours to lose- 
To use. 

Was it love as in wishing- 

Concern as in pity— 

Far be it from me to tell. 
To understand human feeling, 
Explain, reason why. 

I'd like to ... wouldn't I?' 

Suffering is pleasured some say- 
For martyrs, self-pities... 
For me- 
For you- 

Oh, but not to be true! 

Then why all the tears, 
Uttered cries to the wind. 
The world told of its sin- 
If you're heard above the din. 
Pointing, flinging, shrieking- 
True, if seen in mirrored walls. 
Upon own shoulders, guilt quietly ... silently falls. 

I am why the loss is there. 
Hollow self instead of heart, 
Wanting more, but where to start? 
Mend quickly- 
Cry behind your smile 

than half of the second floor 
girls, dressed in the most un- 
believable garb imaginable. 

I am saying to myself, "This 
has to be a dream. It's too early 
for Mardi Gras, and too late for 
April Fools." 

Quickly I was brought out of 
my daze with shrieks of "Trick 
or Treat." 

Yes, this instance, like many 
others, will be occurring 
tomorrow, Oct. 31 on 

Thousands of children, young 
of age, and most especially 
young at heart; will be 
celebrating one of the most 
enjoyable days of the year. 

Halloween is a time when 
everyone is miracously a child 
again, playing practical jokes 
and harmless pranks in the 
search for "Treats." Its name 
means "hallowed or holy 
evening," because it is the day 
before All Saints Day. 

To some folks, Halloween is a 
mysterious time, because of the 
many superstitions and legends 
connected with the day. 

The Irish have a tale about 
the origin of the jack-o-lantern. 
They say that a man named 
Jack was unable to enter the 
gates of Heaven because of his 
sorriness. He could not enter 
Hell because of the practical 
jokes, he had played on the 
devil. So, he was doomed to a 
life of walking the earth 
swinging his lantern, until 
Judgement Day. 

Have you ever wondered why 
witches, cats, and ghosts are 
used as Halloween symbols 9 

Long times ago, the Druids, 
an order of priests in ancient 
Gaul and Britian, believed that 
evil spirits came out on 
Halloween. They thought the 
cat was sacred, believing it to 
once be a human. However, it 
was later changed into a cat for 
punishment of evil deeds. 

So, don't be surprised if 
sometime. somewhere, 
somehow, someone comes up to 
you and says, "The Gobblins 
are gonna get 'cha if you don't 
watch out!" 
It could just be Halloween. 


What is the Escher 
phenomenon all about? 

A bearded N.Y.U. sophomore 
puts it this way: 

"It's like a trip on pot, but 

A Northwestern coed, on the 
other hand, claims that she 
can't stand to look at an Escher 
when she's high: 

"The combination blows my 
mind," she says. "I've got to 
choose one or the other." 

Like Indian headbands, 
graphics by M. C. Escher have 
been around for quite a while. 
(The Dutch artist is 71 years 
old). And like those antique 
artifacts, Escher's work is the 
object of a current surge of 
affection in the underground 
and on college campuses. 

His graphics first began to 
sell in the Twenties, when his 
geometric interlocking designs 
appeared in the marketplace 
near Harlem (The 
Netherlands). But this year 
alone - nearly half a century 
later - he 's had a major show at 
the Phoenix Gallery near 
Berkeley. His works have been 
featured in 1970 in such diverse 
publications as Saturday 

Review and Rolling Stone, 

which carried a significant 
evaluation of his work last 
spring. He's even made the big- 
time: the pages of the Whole 
Earth catalog, the "insiest" of 
in-publications. To cap it off, 
Hawthorn Books, Inc. has put 
65,000 copies of THE GRAPHIC 
( $9.95) in print this year to meet 
the vigorous demand from 
students and art buffs. The 
book, first published in 1961 had 
sold an average of 10,000 copies 
annually until 1969 when the 
dykes of Escher's popularity 
first burst open. 

In more erudite fashion than 
the students quoted above, 
Thomas Albright (in an article 
for Rolling Stone, February 21, 
1970) describes Escher's work 
this way: 

"The main reason for the 
sudden run on Escher is the 
close parallel of his vision to the 
themes of contemporary 
'psychedelic' art. Escher's 
stocks in trade are the concepts 
of a perpetual metamorphosis 
of one form into another and of 
the infinite potential with which 
every image is charged, the fact 

that nothing is really as it seems 
and that everything is governed 
by higher laws of logic and 
mathematic laws that draw the 
universe and all its opposing 
elements together in a 
mysterious, knowing harmony. 
He visualizes these themes 
more articulately and 
universally than any other 
artist alive, and in a seemingly 
infinite variety of ways." 

Escher studied at the School 
of Architecture and Decorative 
Arts in Harlem in the Twenties. 
Since then, he has lived in 
Switzerland, Belgium, and 
Holland, where he currently 
makes his home. He divides the 
bulk of his work since 1935 into 
nine broad categories, three of 
which are 1) those based on the 
regular division of a plane in a 
never-ending optical continuum 
2) those prints in which the 
background and foreground 
change places and 3) those in 
which a geometric plane (a 
triangle or square, for instance) 
evolves into a three- 
dimensional bird or reptile. 

Possibly the most significant 
comprise a fourth class, those 
Rolling Stone calls, "story 
pictures." For example, "a 
procession of reptiles emerges 
from a group of sketches on a 
drawing board, carry forth a 
brief existence as they crawl 
over books and inkwells, snort 
smoke, and then return to their 
paper images."

Staffs Attend 
Press Conference 

By Melani O' 

Six staff members from the 
Potpourri and Current Sauce 
will depart from NSU on Nov. 5 
at 9 a.m. enroute to the ACP- 
NCCPA (Associated Collegiate 
Press-National Council of 
College Publications Advisors) 
67th annual Conference in 
Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

Current Sauce staff members 
to attend are Bessie Brock, 

editor; Niva Chavez, news 
editor; and Malcolm Maddox, 
Business manager. Mr. 
Franklin I. Presson, faculty 
advisor will also attend the 
ACT-NCCPA Conference. 

Potpourri staff members that 
will go to the conference are 
Gayle Palmer, editor; Becky 
Fenny, associate editor; and 
Larry McKenzie, business 

Students attending the ACP- 
NCCPA Conference will stay at 
the Leamington Hotel, owned 
by Bob Short of the Washington 
Senators baseball team. All 
conference sessions will be held 
at the Leamington Hotel. 

All phases of college 
publications work will be in- 
cluded in a hundred different 
ninety-minute sessions. 

Advisors and technical ex- 
perts will lead about half of 
these sessions on publication 



Issues and Answers sessions 
will be held on ecology, drugs, 
campus unrest, and the election 
results. Included will be a six 
part series on press censorship 
and a three hour discussion on 
the future of yearbooks. 

One-third of the meetings will 
be student-led peer group rap 
sessions. Some of the topics will 
be arranged. 

Representatives from NSU 
will choose the sessions they 
want to attend and register 
for them when they arrive 
according to Mr. Presson, 
Current Sauce advisor. 

"I look forward to the 
educational benefits of the 
sessions and the pleasure of 
getting acquainted with Pot- 
pourri and Current Sauce staff 
members. The trip is a fitting 
reward to these NSU students 
for their work on the staffs in 
my opinion," commented Mr. 

Conference entertainment 
will consist of receptions for 
advisors on Thursday and 
Friday nights; a conference 
dance and open house for 
students on Friday night. Film 
previews are being scheduled 
for "off hours" during the

The general consensus of 
opinion of the Executive

the main points of the petition, 
but no individual or definite 
group opinion can be stated at 
this time. 

The presentation and 
discussion of the petition was 
held in a closed session of the 
AWS Executive Committee. 
The AWS is also open to other 
suggestions from students. 

A suggestion box has been 
placed in each of the girl's 
dorms. Every Tuesday the AWS 
Executive Committee meets 
and the suggestions are read 
and referred to the appropriate 
SGA committees or other 
groups for action. Those 
suggestions the Executive 
Committee can deal with 
remain in their committee. 

The first Monday of each 
month the Greater Council, 
which consists of the Executive 
Committee and the five dorm 
officers from each dorm, meet. 
The Greater Council goes 
through the rule book and 
discusses different points. The 
AWS is in the process of writing 
letters to other Louisiana state 

colleges for information con- 
cerning other methods of 
handling in and out cards. 

After discussion in the 
Greater Council and the 
Fv^cuiive Committee, the 
petition will go to the ad- 
ministration. Dean Hendricks, 
Dean Fulton, and often 
President Kilpatrick are con- 
sulted in such matters.

A beautiful set, an interesting 
soundtrack, exquisite 
costumes, and very good acting 
combined as the elements of the 
NSU Theatre's second 
production, James Goldman's 
"The Lion In Winter." 

Haag Featured 
In Approaching 
Lecture Series 

Northwestern State 
University's Distinguished 
Lecture Series will present its 
first program next Wednesday, 
with Dr. William G. Haag, 
Alumni Professor of An- 
thropology at Louisiana State 
University, will be serving as 
the speaker. 

"The Role of the Student in 
Social Change" will be the topic 
of Dr. Haag's speech. 

Faculty members, students 
and the public are invited to the 
lecture, which is scheduled for 
10a.m., Nov. 18, in the Fine Arts 

Dr. Haag will speak in several 
classes and conduct informal 
conferences and seminars with 
students and faculty members 
while he is on campus Nov. 16- 
18, in addition to the all- 
university lecture. 

He has been a member of the 
LSU faculty since 1952, and 
received his bachelor and 
master's degree from the 
University of Kentucky and his 
doctorate from the University 
of Michigan. 

In addition to teaching at the 
University of Kentucky and the 
University of Mississippi he has 
served as head of the Depart- 
ment of Geography and An- 
thropology at LSU, and has 
been visiting professor at 
Harvard and Indiana. 

Dr. Haag is the author of 
several books and numerous 
articles for professional jour- 
nals. He also holds mem- 
berships in several honor 
societies and fraternities. 

King Henry's wife, the 
deposed queen Eleanor, was 
played excellently by J. C. 
Huntley. Eleanor is a very 
sarcastic, cold, and cruel in- 
dividual. Mrs. Huntley did a 
fine job in creating this 
character. Many of the 
humorous lines in the play are 
delivered by Eleanor. Mrs. 
Huntley took the opportunity to 
make certain that each line was 
delivered with keen timing and 
proper inflection - laughter was 
the result. 

Richard the Lion Hearted was 
a cruel, hard, and hateful 
prince. Wade Heaton portrayed 
the character with near per- 
fection. Never once was there 
any doubt as to who Richard 
was and what he stood for. 

Sly, deceitful, and selfisn are 
the characteristics of Geoffrey. 
Clothed in black, James Wilson 
created a snake-like character 
that no one could trust. Indeed 
he was a Geoffrey, and a very 
good one. 

King Phillip of France, and his 
sister Alais were also present in 
Chinon for the Christmas 
holidays. Phillip was played 
well by George Sewell. A very 
fine job was done by Mrs. 
Charles Park in the role of 
Alais. Tommy Torpy did an 
adequate job with role of John. 

An overall view of the show is 
indeed a favorable view. Aside 
from the previously mentioned 
aspects of the production, one 
must keep in mind the script. 
The script is very well written 
and is of historical significance. 
Anyone who missed the show 
really missed something worth- 

Congratulations to the cast 
and crew of "The Lion In 
Winter" for providing en- 
tertainment of sterling quality 
for Northwestern students. 

"The Lion In Winter" centers 
its story around King Henry II, 
the English king who united 
most of Europe and began the 

Plantagenet line. King Henry is 
perplexed by the problem of 
finding a successor. He is 
personally committed to his 
youngest son, John. Henry's 
oldest living son, Richard, has 
acquired the Acquataine, a 
valuable province in France. 
Using this as his power base, 
Richard and his mother, 
Eleanor, are determined to see 
the crown rest upon Richard's 
head. Geoffrey, the middle son, 
is intent upon playing one side 
against the other in the hope 
that he can eventually win the 
throne for himself. 

Christmas, 1183 is the time of 
the action. A very tasteful and 
beautiful set was built by Mr. 
Bill Basham and his crew. 

Combinations of blues and golds 
combine to make a very 
pleasing spectacle. Additional 
color is added to the show by 
costumes. Mrs. George Stewart 
and Miss Lynn Kimball are to 
be congratulated for their very 
skillful costuming work which 
added so much to the show. 

A friend of mine said the other 
day that he thought Charles 
Park was the best actor at 
Northwestern. Certainly Mr. 
Park's performance in the lead 
role of Henry did nothing to 
deter this view. Park's acting is 
marked by excellent timing, 
superior vocal interpretations, 
and very effective 
gesticulation. A very believable 
character was portrayed by 
Charlie Park in "The Lion In

Northwestern Begins 
Homecoming Festivities 

By Janet Johnson 

Displays and decorations of 
all sizes, shapes and color 
schemes have begun appearing 
from one corner of the Nor- 
thwestern University Campus 
to the other in preparation for 
the annual Homecoming 
festivities to be held this 

The theme around which the 
ceremony and decorations are 
centered is "Eighty-Six Years 
and Four Names Later." This 
theme represents the fact that 
Northwestern has had four 
names in the 86 years span since 
its founding and that University 
statis has only recently been 

The displays and decorations 
are entries of various student 
organizations who are com- 
peting for a grand prize of $100 
for the best overall display and 
$50 each for the best displays in 
each of four categories. The 
categories are Residence Halls, 
Social Groups, Religious 
Centers and Miscellaneous 

Organizations. The prizes are 
awarded by the NSU Alumni 
Association. Orville Hanchey, 
head of the art department will 
be in charge of the panel which 
will judge the decorations 

Homecoming ceremonies will 
begin with an alumni coffee and 
registration in the Student 
Union Ballroom from 9 until 11 
a.m. Miss Betty Virginia 
Johnson is head of the com- 
mittee in charge of registration. 
Miss Johnson is a teacher from 
the home economics depart- 
ment at Northwestern. 

Blue Key and Circle K service 
clubs will assist the NSU 
Alumni Association in con- 
ducting tours of the campus. 
These tours will include the new 
$2 million Teacner Education 
Center, the $1.7 million 
biological sciences building and 
the $1.2 million physical 
education buildings recently 
going into use here at Nor- 
thwestern. The tours will be 
conducted from 9-11 a.m. 
Saturday morning. 

NSU Students Attend 
Legislative Session 

By Vicki Prather 
Nine members of the NSU 
chapter of the Louisiana In- 
tercollegiate State Legislature 
(LISL), have just returned from 
a State Fall Legislative session, 
which Was held in Baton Rouge 
beginning Thursday, November 

Those members comprising 
the local delegation were 
Donnie Couvillion and Bob 
Fleege, who acted as Senators. 
Serving as representatives 
were Mark Fleege, Michael 
Levine, Ben Price, Mike Price 
and Myra Jo Smiley. 

Couvillion, President of the 
NSU LISL; stated "all of the 
four bills introduced at the 
session by the Legislators from 
here were passed. These bills 
dealt with the establishment of 
voting facilities for national and 
state elections on college 
campuses; the permitting of 
students over 21 to live off of 
campus without restriction ; the 
revision of housing and 
behaVior rules to eliminate 
discrimination on the grounds 
of sex; and the planning of all 
Louisiana colleges under one 
board of education instead of 
the present two." 

Of the proposed LISL 
Legislation, there were 72 bills 
submitted for approval. Of 
these 55 bills which were 
presented, 36 passed. 

Those bills which were passed 
were issues concerning 18-year- 
old vote, the formation of a 
chapter system, disengage 
organized crime, the separation 
of LSU— New Orleans, com- 
pulsory housing and drivers' 

Other issues which were 
approved were contraception 
centers, hair and dress at 
McNeese, Grambling vs. Penal 
Institution, change the 
Grambling name from a college 
to a university, publications of 
finances, the hiring of 
professional psychiatrists, and 
environmental studies. 

Abolition of the death penalty, 
family planning, sex education, 

black coordinating committees, 
seven-day meal plan, postal 
revision, public release of 
voting record, an en- 
vironmental study, legal 
research, legislative advisory, 
and opposition to convict guards 
were other subjects approved. 

Issues related to restrictive 
colleges were accepted, as well 
as those concerning campus 
housing, voting facilities on 
campus, alimony paid by 
women, "pop festivals," 
statewide transfer of credits, 
blue laws and the licensing of 

Representatives from 11 state 
universities and colleges 
were present at the session 
Each of the 72 bills were con- 
sidered and acted upon by the 
mock Legislature. 

The LISL is patterned after 
the state government, with a 
house of representatives, and 
executive offices. 

The goal of the State 
Legislation now is to, after 
receiving the approval on the 
bills, lobby them in the 
Louisiana Legislature. Mem- 
bers of the executive committee 
will select 15 of these bills, 
which they believe to be most 
important, to be lobbied. 

When asked what he thought 
of LISL, Couvillion replied, "It 
has formulated a very definite 
policy, one which I feel is ad- 
vantageous for students. I was 
impressed by the caliber of the 
individuals attending the 
convention and the interest it 
stimulated at NSU. We can 
work together in making a non- 
violent, effective change." 

Couvillion was elected to the 
State Education Council of LISL 
during the session. Both he and 
Bob Fleege served as chairmen 
of Legislative committees. 

LISL is a potentially great 
organization and anyone is 
invited to come voice his 
opinions on any matter con- 
cerning him. 

Meetings are held weekly at 8 
p.m. on Tuesday in Room 320 of 
the Student Union.

being co-ordinated by Ernie Hill 
of the health and physical 
education department. Hill will 
also be in charge of the half- 
time activities. 

Hundreds of Alumni are 
expected to attend the 
festivities which will take place 
this Saturday. The classes of

Aim of Group 
POW's Release 

Hanoi, release the prisoners! 
This is the plea of persons in- 
terested in the safe return of 
American prisoner of war in 
North Vietnam. The AWS, under 
the director of Lynn Killen, 
President of the AWS, has 
begun a movement for such 
concerned people on campus. 

Mrs. Betty Omstead, whose 
husband is a Navy Commander 
and has been a prisoner of 
North Vietnam for five years, 
and Mr. Norm Trahan, head of 
the Ark-La-Tex Families for 
Action, spoke to the AWS at 
their last meeting about 
starting a program for release 
of the prisoners in North 
Vietnam on campus. 

Both stated that the only in- 
fluential force affecting the 
President of North Vietnam is 
U.S. public opinion, and letter 
writing is a show of public 

The AWS as a result has 
distributied prepared letters, 
requiring only the individual's 
signature, to all the girl's 
dorms. The AWS will also have 
a booth in front of the Student 
Union this Saturday from 8 am. 
until the Homecoming game 
with 5,000 of these letters. The 
AWS hopes to reach all in- 
terested students, alumni, and 
visitors. They alo plan 
distribution of such letters in 
the men's dorms. 

Around Thanksgiving, all the 
signed letters collected will be 
sent to North Vietnam. Such 
movements have been started 
all over the U.S.

On Surveys 

THE MUCKRAKER jj Words of Wisdom 

As you may see from the 
heading, Jack Hoffstadt is no 
longer writing this column. 
Some may like this, others may 
not, but the fact is that this 
column was originated with the 
intention of giving critical 

editorial opinion on some of the 
faults around this school. And 
although Mr. Hoffstadt would 
gallop desperately from wind- 
mill to windmill, he was, 
because of his office, hindered 
from commentary on all 
organizations on this campus - 
hence Ron Wilkerson. 

Mr. Hoffstadt gave this 
column its life and therefore 
deserves one final mention - 
even though at SGA meetings it 
is at times hard to tell whether 
he has slipped into a coma or 
passed away - at least it can be 
said that he means well. 

Enough said about the past. 
Let us look to the present. At the 
Oct. 2 meeting of the SGA they 
voted almost $900 to purchase 
Blue Key blazers, Circle K 
jackets, and jackets for the 
Purple Jackets. I think it a 
disgrace for a governing body 
supposedly representing the 

students at this college to vote 
awards to organizations which 
are exclusve in their mem- 
bership ( you must have better 
than a 2.5, you had better not 
have long hair, be black, or too 

Blue Key, for example, needs 

by Ron Wilkerson 

$450 for blazers while they 
proudly boast they gave $700 to 
charity. This means that 
although $700 was given, they 
demand nearly 65 per cent back 
in payment. If this is a "ser- 
vice" organization so is the 

mafia. Hoffstadt even 
suggested that their 
organization be given the lump 
sum and from it they should buy 
themselves awards at a 
reasonable price and with the 
surplus (and there would be a 
surplus if reasonable awards 

were bought) have a joint 
project that would do a real 
service to the student. While I 
don't really think much of this 
idea, at least the "service" 
organization would be able to 
perform a real service while 
buying themselves awards. 

Good Guy award of the Week 
goes to David Precht who un- 
selfishly gave up his 
Thanksgiving vacation to go to 
a convention in Las Vegas. All 
kidding aside, it is for a wor- 
thwhile convention and only 
cost 235 chips (oops!) I mean 
dollars to send our represen- 

I would also like to apologize 
to the band for a mistake Mr. 
Hoffstadt made earlier about 
the band marching on the 
football field five days a week. 
It seems that they seldom have 
the opportunity to practice on 
the field. (I want the slate clear 
as I start to write this column.) 

I The State Of The Union 

As the weeks pass by, the 
Union Board Activity Calendar 
becomes increasingly crowded. 
The majority of this column will 
be dedicated to a brief review of 
upcoming events. 

On November 9, the Union 
Board sent to all dorms and 
organizations nominee forms 
for the Mardi Gras Ball Court. 

The Ball is not scheduled until 
February 17, 1971. In the light of 
early planning, however, the 
Union Board has already begun 
preparations for the festive 

event. The Union Board has also 
recently completed nomina- 
tions for the annual Winter Ball 
Court. The election for this 

concert will be held in the Union 
lobby on November 19. This all 
university formal ball is 
scheduled to take place on 
Friday, Dec. 4, 1970. 

The Fine Arts Committee has 
also scheduled the Annual 
Union Window Painting Contest 
for December 4, 1970. This 
particular event that tran- 
sforms the Union into a spec- 
ticle of color and art is enjoyed 
by all students each year. The 

by Val Marmillion 

Music and Films Committee 
has plans for another great 
movie this month. Because of 
the popularity of previous 
movies, the committee has 
decided to run the flick for a two 

night engagement in the Arts 
and Sciences Auditorium. The 
movie, "The April Fools" will 
be shown Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday, Nov. 17 and 18, at 7:30 

By the way, don't forget to 
pickup your free gift packs in 
the Union lobby on Nov. 19, 1970. 
This service, sponsored an- 
nually by the Union Board, 
gives all students free samples 
of personal items. 

Recently, the Union Board 
returned from our Regional 
Union Convention in Fort 
Worth. Valuable knowledge in 
various fields was gained from 
the conference. You can look 
forward to even more in- 
novations in Union program- 
ming in the future months. A 
related story in this issue of the 
Current Sauce will give you 
more information on the Region 
XII Union Convention. 

Seventy-five per cent of 
Northwestern students may 
have had irregularity this week, 
according to a recent poll by 
this writer. 

Ten students, who were 
selected by random sample, 
were asked if they had ex- 
perienced any irregular bowel 
movements during the past 
week or so. Seven of these 
students, with strained faces, 

explained that they had ex- 
perienced irregularity during 
the past week, and four of them 
said that the problem was more 
or less "chronic" with them, as 
they have had it several times 
already this semester. One 
student (the extra five per cent) 
said that he felt "an attack" 
coming on. 

Several other students 
questioned even stated that they 
had experienced irregularity in 
the Student Union, believe it or 
not. Of course all these students 
were promised that their names 
would not be mentioned to avoid 
future embarrassment. 

The above farcical "survey" 
is merely intended to point out 
an inherent flaw in Charles 
Herring's article "Marijuana 
On Campus," in the October 30 
issue of the Current Sauce. One 
can simply not get a 

representative sample on the 
extensiveness of marijuana use 
by questioning 25 or even 50 
" students - or on any other topic 
for that matter. 

Yet, the article and its author 
purported those statements to 
be accurate and representative. 
It is difficult to believe that 2,000 
Northwestern students use pot 
at all, much less regularly. 

The point of this column is not 
that the statements Herring 
made should not have been 
printed - 1 am a firm believer in 
freedom of the press. Rather, it 
is to say that those projections 
should not have been played up- 


The Current Sauce is the official publication of the student 
body of Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, La. It 
is entered as second class matter at the Natchitoches Post 
Office under the act of March 3, 1879. It is published weekly, 
except during holidays and test weeks, by the Student Body 
of Northwestern State University of Louisiana. Subscriptions

as accurate. No poll of 50 
students can be completely 
random, and should not be 
depicted as such. 

Nevertheless, it is doubtful 
that Herring's article would 
have had much adverse impact 
on NSU, had not some of our 
more sensation-seeking 
newscasters on area radio 
stations seen fit to lift some of 

those statistics and statements 
out of context for airing on radio 
news programs. It would not be 
far wrong to suspect that people 
in the Shreveport and Nat- 
chitoches areas think Nor- 
thwestern students have to turn 
on every morning before class, 
and discuss current events of 

the day in the Student Union 
Cafeteria over a cup of coffee 
and a marijuana cigarette. 

Still, the article was en- 
joyable and contained some 
factual information and 
opinions which were easily 
worthy of printing in the 

Current Sauce or any 

newspaper. I particularly agree 
with statement, "Exaggerated 
anti-marijuana propaganda ... 
started many (students) of 
them on drugs," And, 
exaggerated pro-marijuana 
articles can have equally 
detrimental effects on people - 
young and old alike. 

In summation, although I 
disagreed with many things 
Herring said, I strongly defend 
his right to have it printed. I 
hold that it is at the discretion of 
the writer and the editor of a 
newspaper how to present 

opinions and information and 
whether or not to print them. 
My argument is that the author 
should have had a little more 
foresight, and should con- 
sequently should have qualified 
his sources and his information. 
And, with these criticisms I 
have made held somewhere in 
your thoughts, Charles, Write

News And Views 

The world's first epidemic of 
modern drug abuse was 
triggered by unused stockpiles 
of "speed pills" used to 
stimulate Japanese soldiers in 
World War II. 

Dr. Masaaki Kato of the 
Japanese National Institute of 
Mental Health reported that his 
country was left with huge 
stockpiles of amphetamines 

when the war ended. The drugs, 
he said, were issued to the air 
force and other Japanese 
military units to bolster their 
fighting spirit. 

Japanese pharmaceutical 
were left with the surplus and 
tried to sell these by 
propogandizing that this was a 

drug to inspire the fighting 
spirits in daily life, not realizing 
at the time that it produced a 
dependancy in the user. 

Drug abuse and suicide rates 
in Japan peaked during the 10 
years following World War H. 
Japanese youth were reported 
to be in a growing pessimistic 

mood following this trend. The 
epidemic peaked in 1954 when 
there were 550,000 abusers in 
Japan, some 200,000 of whom 
showed some psychotic symp- 

Dr. Kato said "The violent, 
aggressive behavior among 
youth became manifest since 
that time, and the number of 
violent crimes among them 
increased after the reduction of 
stimulant abuse and suicide." 

This trend of drug abuse 
should never have been allowed 
to continue. Legal controls and 
improvement of national 

morals should have been in- 
stituted when the effects of 
"speed pills" was discovered. 
Of course it is easy to say this 

now when the situation is ob- 
vious and everyone already 
realizes the need for control. 
Perhaps it was beyond the 

scope of the Japanese 
imagination to perceive the 
problem that had arisen

because they were unable to be 
objective at the time. 

This does, however, not ex- 
clude the American public. A 
similar situation exists here and 
now, and the blame will rest 
with us if it is not stopped im- 

It has been said that history 
repeats itself. This must be 
connected with the fact that 
people repeat what other people 
do as part of their learning 
process. But the sad repetition 
of mistakes is a common error 

of humanity. A lack of ob- 
jectivity cannot be condoned, 
and apathy, if it is involved, 
remains the greatest human 
fault since the beginning of 

Drug abuse in Vietnam by our 
service men and at home by our 
youth is a repetition of the 
Japanese incident in World War 
II. A snow ball effect is oc- 
curing. The effect of the 
Japanese incident has in- 
creased the effect and wide 

spread use of amphetamines in 
our youth. The cumulative 
effect will not end here. The 
effect will intensify at an 
alarming rate in the near 

A large scale program of 
cleaning up drug supplies and 
help for users should be in- 
stituted by the armed forces. 

This means of control can be 
brought to bear by public 
pressure at the polls and 
through petitions. An 

organization of consciensous 
people to help guide this 
movement would be of utmost 
importance. Once the armed 
services is cleared of its drug 
abuse then co-operative action 
with authorities who un- 
derstand the situation could 
begin giving the psychological 
and physiological help that 
American youth need. Drug 
abuse in this sense would be 
considered similar to a disease 
and treated in such a manner. 

Dear Editor, 

My congratulations go to 
Charles Herring who wrote the 
recent article about marijuana 
on campus. From my 
knowledge of the situation, his 
article seems to be fairly ac- 
curate, although his estimate of 
the percentage of steady users 
might be slightly high. 
Nevertheless, it is more ac- 
curate than the ignorant 
students on this campus could 
realize, and it's about time that 
someone had the initiative and 
guts to stick his neck out and 
write a worthwhile article about 
an important and controversial 
issue of our time. 

Herring and two other writers 
by the names of David Precht 
and Jack Hoffstadt are three 
people who concern themselves 
with facts that are relevant to 
the students; and the Current 
Sauce needs more people like 
them to enlighten Nor- 
thwestern's sleeping student 
body about the conditions that 
surround them on this campus, 
good or bad, and motivate them 
into action. So far, the Current 
Sauce has been primarily 
concerned with superbly 
written baby stories, such as the 
title of one recent article, 
"Representatives Enjoy North- 
western's Crow," or another 
one which read, "The Great 
Pumpkin Makes the NSU 
Scene," which not only wastes 
space in the paper that could be 
used for more intelligent 
comments, but which shows the 
junior high intellegence level of 
some of this paper's writers. 
This stuff just should not be 
found in a college newspaper! 
How could someone be con- 
cerned with a pumpkin when so 
many students are screaming 
for informative views which 
contain enlightening in- 
formation about today's 
tragically mixed up world. 
Herring's article has been a 
significant step forward in 
providing for NSU this 
enlightening information which 
should be more interesting to 
the students than pumpkins and 

I hope to see more of 
Herring's articles in the paper 
and I also hope that it will en- 
courage more writers to follow 
his lead and begin to provide 
some material that will reflect 
the dignity that the Current 
Sauce should have as being a 
worthwhile college newspaper. 

Martin Byrd 

(EDITOR'S NOTE — Mr. Byrd, 
since you are such a self- 
appointed expert on marijuana, 
intelligence, and motivation, 
what do you have to suggest? 
What facts do you and your 
three cohorts - Precht, Hoff- 
stadt, and Herring have? Are 
the students here "sleeping" or 
"screaming for informative 
views?" If they are sleeping, 
could they be sleeping on 
marijuana? Is marijuana 
motivating? Which students are 

Dear Mr. Herring, 

After reading the survey of 
marijuana that appeared in the 
October 30 issue of the Current 
Sauce, I find many questions 
arise. I believe these questions 
need to be answered to validate 
this survey. 

First, do you believe 50 out of 
5,000 is a creditable number on 
which to base such broad 
generalizations? I believe you 

are prey to the fallacies of hasty 
generalization. One percent of 
the student body surely is not 
enough of a representation on 
such a controversial subject as 
marijuana useage. A number on 
the order of ten percent would 
certainly be more valid. 

Secondly, how were these 
students chosen for in- 
terviewing? Surely a poll of this 
type would be easy to get results 
such as these. By choosing only 
the more liberal students, it is 
highly likely that such results 
would be rendered. But, it is 
also highly possible to come up 
with the exact opposite findings 
by questioning only the more 
conservative students. I might 
add that these two groups are 
easily distinguishable on the 
NSU campus. 

Thirdly, what percentage of 
those questioned were male? I 
ask this because it has been my 
experience that males seem to 
be more "daring," shall we say, 
than females. Therefore, I 
believe more males would try or 
use marijuana. Also, because of 
their lack of restraints, it is 
easier for males to obtain 

I believe these questions must 
be taken into consideration 
when one reads this survey. 
They surely must be clarified 
before the student body and the 
public can be asked to accept 
this survey as a valid and 
representative one. 

Wendell R. Johnson 

Dear Editor, 

It is high time for us to all 
take a long look at what we are 
and what we are to be. In being 
classified as a University we 
are supposed to interact, 
students to faculty. This in- 
tellectual interaction is devised 
to prepare us for the world 
awaiting us-one in which we 
must throw off the irrespon- 
sibility of youth and made a 
place with which we can be 

We have heard a great deal 
lately about the parking con- 
ditions on campus and how 
there should be walk ways built 
to keep our eager students from 
being unable to bounce eagerly 
into class. Only a handful of us 
have realized that these 
questions are petty compared to 
those asked by an enlightened 

Compare the attitude of the 
typical editorial on dormitory 
hours and you will find that it is 
the consensus of those 
petitioners, under their 
sometimes emotion-charged 
facade, to ask that a university 
student be treated as such, a 
university student— men and 
women in search of knowledge, 
not a senseless group of 
juveniles in search of some high 
endeavor as a panty raid. It is to 
our shame that we are afraid to 
speak our minds in rational and 
orderly procession. How many 
people made their feelings 
evident on the Kent State 
killings? How many of us have 
sought to keep in existence 
"Free Speech Alley?" We are 
given the ability to ask for those 
rights we feel we are entitled to, 
so let's use those avenues and 
not let the title "university" be 
just a misnomer. 

William A. McBride 

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie Brock 

I was both surprised and flattered to pick up a 
copy of the Alexandria Daily Town Talk a few 
weeks ago and find that Adras LaBorde, 
managing editor of the paper, had devoted an 
entire editorial column to comment about the 
letter to the editor written by Gary Stringer of 
the NSU English Department to the Current 
Sauce and the reply which I made to that letter. 

Mr. LaBorde starts out by saying that Mr. 
Stringer "earned his apple." The teacher may 
have earned his apple in this case, but the apple 
may have a worm in it (as apples do at times). 

Mr. LaBorde, you have accepted Stringer's 
position without question, including the ac- 
cusation of a "transparent cop-out" which is an 
anti-establishment term made by Stringer (a 
member of the establishment? ) You and he have 
your opinions. Not all editors would accept and 
adopt your personal position on the obligations of 
an editor or the major purpose of a newspaper - 
college or otherwise. 

It is true that some people want to be spoonfed. 
It is also true that some - including editors and 
English professors - are willing to spoon feed 
their own opinions to those who will swallow 
them. I, for one, am not swallowing. 

Mr. LaBorde talks in his column about 
thinking and leadership when he should have 
been giving leadership and invoking thought 
instead of talking about it. Since the Town Talk is 
the only local paper in the Alexandria area and 
LaBorde 's column is the only one with comment 
on local matters on the editorial page, he should 
have been provoking people to "make optimum 
use of their thinking machines," instead of 
talking about it. Too much talk and not enough 
action gets one no where. 

With this said, I would like to pose a few 
questions. How long has it been since you have 
been on this campus, Mr. LaBorde? How many 
young journalists have you encouraged? I invite 
you to this campus to do some mind-stirring and 
to invoke some thinking on the part of the 
students of this university. If everyone talks and 
does not act, nothing will get done. If you want 
something done right, do it yourself. 

Considering what I have said, it is good to 
know that not all editors" over thirty arei 
calloused and cynical, and that some still believe 
in "prayer in the morning, a clean shave, serious 
thinking and soul searching" for all of us. But is 
shock preferable to persuasion?

Activities this week have been 
centered around tomorrow's 
Homecoming. A party or a

considered as possible alter- 
natives for the weekend. 

Sunday an Active-Pledge

will undoubtedly call another 
fair game this year. Buddy

good food. 

The reception following the

held for our sisters from USL 
and all the returning alumni. 
DZ would like to extend the best 
of LUCK to the DEMONS this

Founder's Day activities will 
include a ceremony at the 
Sigma Kappa House at 5:30 
Sunday and attendance at the

ticipation is running high in the 
pledge class, for the slumber 
party will be held tomorrow; 
and the 29 pledges will soon 
know the identity of their Big 

Pledge of the Week Last week 
was Kris Russo. This week two 
Sigmas shared that honor- 
Paula Sanders and Lydia 
Brasher. Ring ceremonies were 
held last week for Sisters Janet 
Churchman and Liz Koury. 

Sigmas who represented NSU 
at the Region Twelve Student 
Union Convention in Fort 
Worth, Texas, November 1-3 
were Sisters Debbie Wallace, 
Fran Arnona, and Debbie 
Hardaway. They returned

also the fact that they met a 
group of SK's during their stay. 

A light bulb sale, the campus 
cleanup, and participation in

' Men students account for 
Umost all of the damage, 
Rollins stated in an interview 
Monday in which he termed 
■jtudent destruction on campus 
Is a "bad situation." 

"Students should take care of 
lie dorms as they would their 
>wn homes. I know they don't 
let like that at home," Collins 

I "If you are going to have 
Jorms, you are going to have 
Jestruction," he continued. 
"But damage, such as that done 
|o Prudhomme, is uncalled for. 
Fhat dorm looks like a bomb- 
Ihell hit it." 

Prudhomme was almost 
totally destroyed by students 
pst semester. Large holes were 
lunched in the doors, walls, and 
filing. Knife and dart holes 
Jover the doors. 

To show the damage that can 
?e done to a dorm, a 60 foot 
jection of the hall on the second 
poor of West Rapides was 
Jxamined for damage. 

Rapides was selected because

j hlch adds up to $50. Because of 
lamaged back doors, Rapides 
(•annot be locked up. Students 

have also been severely 
shocked by naked wires in the 
broken exit light. 

The largest amount of 
damage occurred when a 
prankster blew up a $50 urinal 
with a cherry bomb. This fix- 
ture may never be repaired, 
Collins said. 

Officials would not estimate 
the damage done last spring 
when the second floor was 
flooded to a depth of IVz inches. 
Not only were students' 
belongings damaged, but water 
also seeped through the floor 
and dripped on the first floor, 
causing unknown damage to the 
wiring and pipes. 

Students caught destroying 
property will, at the least, have 
to pay for the damage. This 
money will be taken from their 
$25 room deposit. If these funds 
are insufficient, the student will 
have to make up the difference. 

If the damage is an accident, 
students will not be charged. 
Students may also be 
disciplined or expelled. 

"Believe it or not, boys can be 
put on strict campus," Collins 
pointed out. 

Fire alarms have been taken 
out of the dormitories because 
students kept pulling them, 
Collins said. 

The installation of air- 
conditioning along with the 
updating of old dorms may 
decrease damages, Collins 

"Until we can update the 
dorms and repair the damages, 
students will keep on damaging 
the dorms. If students see 
damage already done, they will 
add to it. If they don't see any 
damage, they most likely will 
not do any," Collins stated. 

Damage to dormitories may 
be decreasing, Collins believes. 

"Since I live in West Rapides, 
I can tell you it has had a bad 
reputation for trouble. The fall 
of 1968 was really bad. But since 
then West Rapides has im- 

proved - it is not like it once 

"For example, in 1968, bombs 
were being put in the trash cans 
-not firecrackers, but bombs. I 
don't think a firecracker could 
blow the top of the trash can 
through the ceiling and blow the 
' sides into the monitors' doors on 
each end of the hall. We caught 
and got rid of the student 
responsible," said Collins. 

Residents of Rapides have 
also remarked that damage, 
noise, and pranks seem to be 
much less this semester. 

Collins praised the female 

"Girls' dorms are extremely 
neat. The girls handle them- 
selves well. I've never seen any 
malicious damage done by 
female students." 

Tutoring Program 

Members of Blue Key, men's 
honorary service organization, 
are conducting a tutoring 
program for NSU students. The 
areas of study include 
Chemistry, Math, Biology, and 
Freshman English. 

Participation in the program 
thus far has been excellent. The 
sessions are held every Thur- 
sday evening from 7 - 9 p.m. in 
Room 147 of the Arts and 
Sciences Building. 

All NSU students interested in 
the tutoring program are in- 
vited to come.

The young of today are trying 
somehow to build a city of love 
out of a nation of garbage. The 
early signs are all around. 
Marches. Strikes. Sit-ins. 
Bombings. It could happen the 
day after tomorrow: an open 
rebellion of America's youth 
against their channelled, 
unrewarding lives and the self- 
serving plastic society that 
directs them. 

Marge Piercy, a young, angry 
and gifted author, has written a 
daring new novel, DANCE THE 
(Doubleday, October 23) about 
the day after tomorrow. She 
follows four young people-a 
rock singer who discovers his 
money is not his own; a 
"problem student" who cares 
more about his Sioux and 
Cherokee heritage than about 
the white society he lives in; a 
science whiz who is trapped and 
exploited by his school and his 
family; an army brat who runs 
away to the East Village in 
search of her identity-caught 
up the center of the revolt. They 
begin in disillusionment and 
alienation, try to build a 
visionary new society, gain a 
nationwide following, and 
finally face inevitable, brutal 
repression. This is future fiction 
without a drop of fantasy, a 
driving, violent, blunt, on-target 
work by a prodigiously talented 
and passionately involved 
young author. 

Marge Piercy is an ex- 
Detroiter who has published two 

New Draft 

Selective Service Director 
Curtis W. Tarr reported Oct. 26 
he has ordered local draft 
boards to permit men to drop 
deferments and take I-A 
classifications at any time 
regardless of whether they 
continue to meet the conditions 
for which their deferments 
were granted. 

The order will especially 
benefit college students who 
have H-S deferments and lot- 
tery numbers above 195-almost 
certain to be the highest 
number that any local board 
will reach this year. 

Men who elect to discard their 
deferments before the end of the 
year and accept the I-A status 
will drop into the 1970 first 
priority group with unreached 
numbers, but on Jan. 1, 1971 
they will be put into the second 
priority group and be subject to 
call only in a national 

A Selective Service Official 
recommended that college 
students with H-S deferments 
call their local boards to find out 
the highest lottery numbers to 
be called in 1970 and make 
decisions based on that in- 
formation. He pointed out that 
at least one board will not go 
past No. 3 this year, while 
many boards will not go beyond 
numbers 140 to 150. If the 
student determines that he will 
not be called this year, he 
should then submit his request 
in writing to cancel his defer- 

"Our purpose" Tarr said, "is 
to achieve fairness to all 
registrants in determining their 
priority status on Jan.l of the 
new year.

battle by New Orleans residents 
to keep an expressway from 
destroying some of the land-

featured in the current issue of 
Northwestern State Univer- 
sity's "Louisiana Studies." 

The 15-page article, entitled 
"Urban Planning: Historical 
Preservation of the Vieux 
Carre," was written by Thomas 
Whitehead, producer and 
director in the instructional 
television system at Nor- 

Whitehead details the history 
of the controversy which began 
in 1964 when the Bureau of

approved plans to place a 
proposed Riverfront-Elysian 
Fields Expressway on the

The author delves into the 
strategy employed by both sides 
during the controversy, and he 
offers suggestions for the 
resolution of the problem.

Brodermann's Gain 

The small attractively fur- 
nished living room was filled 
with gentle laughter as nearly 
thirty students swayed to the 
rhythmic flow of Spanish music. 

This scene describes the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. Ramon 
Brodermann on the night of 
their first Spanish club meeting 
last week. 

Both Dr. Brodermann and his 
wife Nohely are members of the 
faculty at Northwestern. He is 
an assistant professor of 
Spanish and she is a Spanish 

Their students are quick to 
see their enthusiasm and good 
will. In four weeks enough 
enthusiasm was generated in 
the students to boost their 
Spanish club membership to 50 
members. They have also 
developed long-lasting friend- 
ships with previous students. 

Throughout the meeting the 
students were able to become 
more closely acquainted with 
the vibrant character of Mrs. 
Brodermann and the dry humor 
of Dr. Brodermann. 

After a big banquet of home- 
cooked black beans and chicken 
and rice, the students relaxed 
on sofas, chairs and on the floor 
to enjoy different types of 
Spanish music. The Broder- 
manns demonstrated few of the 
different dance steps and were 
aided by a couple of the more 
adventurous students. 

Mrs. Brodermann also 
demonstrates how her dog, 
"puppy", can only understand 
commands and questions given 
to him in Spanish. This is' a feat 
many of the students there are 
having trouble doing. 

After several of the guests 
departed the small group 
remaining gathered around the 
Brodermanns and learned a 
small bit about their personal 

The Brodermanns have been 
in the United States for the past 
ten years. They left Cuba in 1960 
because of the turn in control of 
the Cuban Government to 
Castro. They left on a 29-day 
tourist visa knowing they would 
never return. 

Dr. Brodermann had made 
previous trips to the United 
States. Being a successful 
lawyer in Havanna, Cuba, Dr. 
Brodermann was able to come 
to the United States on business 
trips. "I made about 10 visits," 
he said, then laughingly added, 

"Three were for business and 
the others were to see a football 
game or a special fight." 

Proving himself as a scholar, 
Dr. Brodermann has acquired 
three Ph. D's in Law, Political 
Economical Sciences, and 

Dr. Brodermann has also 
been a softball player. In 1954 he 
played in the World Champion 
Softball game in Minnesota. 

Mrs. Brodermann, the more 
social partner, displays her 
talents in piano playing and 
hostessing. Her friendliness 
radiates about her. She says she 
loves to £o shopping, dancing, 
and being with people. 

Though her husband is fond of 
all types of sports, she listed 
fights as one of her favorites. 
The thing she enjoys most, she 
was quick to add, is Bingo. Her 
husband readily agreed. 

The Brodermanns have just 
acquired their citizenship as of 
July of this year. Their 14 year 
daughter, Maria Christina, is 
now applying for citizenship. 

Throughout their lives 
learning a different language 
has been important to them. 
They both feel colleges and high 
schools should offer a varied 
range of language programs. 
They also understand the 
problems students have in 
learning them. 

"The environment is against 
you," said Dr. Brodermann. 
"All you hear is English. You 
attend your class only one hour 
a day. It is difficult for you to 
catch the pronunciation of all 
the words." 

The Brodermanns enjoy 
living in Natchitoches and in- 
tend to remain here for some 

"Mainly for my daughter's 
sake," he said. He belives the 
small town environment is best 
for her. 

The Brodermanns have come 
to NSU to teach their students a 
basically simple language, but 
they are unconsciously teaching 
their students an even greater 
one. The lesson of freindship 
and harmony between people of 
different countries - a lesson

Biology Building Offers Sophisticated 
Epuipment, Extensive Labs, New Look' 

A quick look around NSU is all that is required to note its' 
vast expansion. New buildings seem to be "popping up" 
everywhere, and one such example is the new Biological 
Science Building. An outside observation of the new structure 
indicates modern design and landscaping techniques. A 
further look inside, however, will also reveal modern days' 
attempt to escape the drab building construction of the past. 

The designers were apparently concerned over the possibility 
of losing oneself within the huge building when they 
thoughtfully provided long painted strips with arrows along 
the walls and doors. This added feature does relieve some of 
the usual walk-to-the-classroom monotony, and may even 
"show the way" for some. The 3 story $1.7 million science 
building contains 59,424 square feet of floor space. The main 
features of the structure include 3 lecture rooms, twenty- 
seven laboratories, and thirty offices for faculty members 
and graduate assistants.

Hunting widows are not

good and several people have

well to take their fishing tackle 
with them when they go duck

hunter can turn into a fisher- 
man. Most lakes that have good 
duck hunting also have fair 
fishing. In this way the sport- 
sman can really bring home a 
mixed bag. 

The fishing has been good the 
last couple of weeks. Lures that 
are having the most success 
are: Rebel, Spot, H&H, Bom-

Northwestern's Glenn Gossett 
and Southwestern's Russ 
Faulkinberry will try to prove 
themselves wrong Saturday in 
NSU's homecoming clash with 
powerful USL. 

Both coaches picked each 
other's team to win the Gulf 
States Conference in pre-season 

Gossett, the only GSC mentor 
to disagree with Northwestern 
as the pre-season choice, is so 
far correct in his prediction. 

Southwestern, dumped last 
week by nationally ranked 
Tampa, leads the league with a 
3-0 mark. Northwestern vaulted 
into a tie for second a week ago 
with a 14-7 win over McNeese. 
NSU and McNeese are 2-1 in 
conference action with Nor- 
theast, 2-2, and Southeastern, 1- 
2, still eligible for a share of the 
championship. La. Tech was 
eliminated last week by 
Southeastern and is now winless 
in four loop outings. 

Could Clinch Tie 

Southwestern could clinch no 
worse than a tie with a victory 
over the Demons while NSU 
must win its two remaining 
games to get a share of the title. 

Saturday's match-up pits the 
leading offensive club in the 
GSC (NSU) and the stingiest 
defense (USL). The Demons are 
averaging 20 points a game and 
have a mark of 350 yards per 
outing. The Bulldogs have given 
up but two touchdowns a con- 

The Purple and White edged 
USL 33-28 last season but the 
Rajun Cajuns own the series 
advantage 30-28-3. 

Richard Ware, who jumped to 
second place among the NSU 
all-time leading rushers with 
his 132 yard effort against 
McNeese, will lead the ball- 
control Demon offense along 
with quarterback Mike Pool, 
plus halfbacks Tommy Wallis 
and Donald Johnson. 

Ware now has 1622 career 
yards which puts him only 
behind former pro great Charlie 
Tolar's 2194 yards. Rugged 
Richard leads the conference 
with 721 markers and also ranks 
in scoring with 36 points. 
Johnson Sparkles 

Ware wasn't the whole show 
however, last week. Donald 
Johnson, who leads the Demons 
with his five yard per carry 
standard, picked up 76 stripes 
on 10 carries. 

Northwestern used an in- 
spired effort from the offensive 
line to pound out 305 yards on 
the ground but an equally fiery 
effort from the defense insured 
the win. 

Ail-American candidate and 
two-time All-GSC Walter Edler 
was credited with 24 individual 
tackles and leads the team with 
111 stops on the year. 

Against McNeese, the GSC's 
leading passing outfit, Nor- 
thwestern's secondary allowed 
only eight of 23 passes to be

by Vicki Prather 

Student Union Governing 
Board sent fourteen delegates 
to the Region Twelve 
Association of College Unions 
International Convention which 
was held November 1-3 in Fort 
Worth, Texas. 

The host Union for the con- 
vention was the Student Union 
of Texas Christian University. 
Over 500 delegates from the 
states of Louisiana, Arkansas, 
and Texas were in attendance. 

Delegates from the NSU 
Governing Board were Val 
Marmillion, Garland Riddle, 
Rhonda Coleman, Debbie 
Wallace, Johnny Mayeaux, 
Gary Digilarmo, Debbie 
Hardaway, Charlotte 
Broussard, Frankie Gaspar,

knowledge to assure effective 

Delegation left the NSU 
campus early on the morning of 
November 1 by NSU bus and 
arrived in Fort Worth later that 
afternoon. They then registered 
at the convention headquarters 
at TCU. 

That evening a very informal 
banquet was held. There the 
regional officers welcomed all 
of the delegates to the con- 
ference and to the city of Fort 

After the banquet, leadership 
labs were begun. The purpose of 
these labs, which were con- 
ducted by two Doctors of 
Psychology at TCU, was to get 

By Cheryl Reese 

the delegates in a relaxed at- 
mosphere and to get them to 
meet each other. This first 
session was a group sensitivity- 
encounter activity. At the end of 
this three hour period, the 
delegates were eager to start 
the convention. 

A business meeting was first 
on the agenda for the delegates 
on November 2. Roll call was 
taken of the fifty schools in 
attendance. New officers were 
also elected with Loyola of New 
Orleans being chosen as 
Chairman and USL of Lafayette 
being chosen as the host school 
for next year's convention. 

Workshops were presented in 
both the morning and afternoon 
sessions. Some of the topics 
discussed were the student 
image, meeting the needs of 
minority groups, big name 
entertainment, and public 
relations. Cultural events, 
defining or defending student 
rights, budgets, the Union's role 
in educational policy making, 
and many other various topics 
were also debated. 

At noon a luncheon was given 
where guest speaker Revius O. 
Ortique, a member of the 
President's Commission on 
"Campus Unrest," spoke on the 
topic of student unrest. He 
discussed the pros and cons on 
students and on law en- 
forcement agencies. Unrest in 
all ^rcus of society was the 
focus of the speech. 

That evening a dinner was 
provided with Coffee House 
performer Keith Sykes 
providing the entertainment. 

Closing remarks were given 
on the morning of November 3, 
and the delegation then jour- 
neyed back to NSU. 

"The convention gave us an 
overall view of how different 
Unions are run throughout the 
country and especially the 
South," stated Val Marmillion, 
president of the NSU Union. 
Marmillion also said that the 
delegates gained many good 
ideas, and they would like to 
incorporate some of them into 
the present program. 

A display was set up at the 
convention by the delegation. 
The theme of the booth was 
"We're Come A Long Way." 
Student Union handbooks were 
given out and pictures of the 
different activities which occur 
during the year were displayed. 

"In comparison to the other 
colleges and universities, we 
found room for some im- 
provements; but overall, we 
outshined the others," stated 

Marmillion termed the 
convention as "definitely

Bids Opened 
For Building 
Of Library 

Bids were opened by the State 
Capital Outlay Budget Board 
this week on the construction of 
a new library at Northwestern 
State University. 

Apparent low bidder on the 
project was the Mclnnis 
Company of Minden with a bid 
of $1,948,314. Bids were taken 
under advisement, and formal 
issuance of a contract is not 
expected for several days. 

Northwestern has received $3 
million in state appropriations 
for the library, which will be 
one of the most modern 
university library facilities in 
the South. 

Architects for the three-story 
building, which will have 100,000 
square feet, are DeKeyser, 
Ponthie and Boutte of 
Alexandria and L. Jaco 
LeBlanc of Lafayette. 

Although present plans call 
for a three-story facility, the 
structure is being planned to 
allow for the addition of two 
more floors should expansion 
become necessary in the future. 

The library will be equipped 
with elevators and will be 
completely carpeted and air- 

Construction of the library 
will be on a tact of land bor- 
dering on Highway 6 on the 
Northwest edge of the campus. 
Three frame buildings which 
have served in recent years as 
fraternity houses have been 
demolished to make way for the 

Among special features of the 
library will be private carrels 
for graduate students, a serials 
reading area, reference and 
bibliography room, seminar 
rooms and faculty and staff 
offices. A media center in the 
library will include microfilm, 
phono-records, tapes and other 
audio-visual equipment. 

Librarian Donald MacKenzie 
said the new facility will hold a 
minimum of 350,000 volumes, 
which will nearly double the 
present library capacity. There 
will be space in the new library 
for 1,000 people. 

There will be a reference 
room on the ground floor and 
reading rooms and reserve 
reading rooms in the two upper

The SGA sponsored the event 
in association with the Campus 
Beautification Committee. 

Twenty-five campus 
organizations were registered 
to participate in the Clean-Up 
Day program. Those 
organizations scheduled to 
participate were, the In- 
terfraternity Council, the 
Panhellenic Council, Purple 
Jackets, Blue Key, Circle K, the 
Euthenics Club, the Institute of 
Electronic Engineers, LISL, 
Phi Epsilon Kappa, ROTC, Phi 
Mu Alpha Sinfonia, the Band 
and Choir, and the Biology Club. 

Each group was assigned a 
specific area of the 916 acre 
campus to clean-up. A panel of 
judges, made up of five faculty 
members, evaluated each area 
before and after the event. 

The organization which did 
the best job, will be awarded a 
plaque during Homecoming 
activities tomorrow. 

The Clean-Up Day is being 
held in conjunction with other 
preparations for Homecoming. 
The SGA said it will become an 
annual event at the University. 

Chris Prestenback, President 
of the Freshmen Class, was 
student chairman of the project. 
He was assisted by other fresh- 
men officers and freshmen 
associates to the SGA. 

Faculty sponsor to the 
program was Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner, Associate 
Professor of Biology, and 
chairman of the University's 
Campus Beautification Com- 

Also assisting in coordinating 
and planning the project were 
the Associated Women 
Students, and the Associated 
Men Students organizations. 

Dr. Baumgardner com- 
mented, "This is going to make 
the students and faculty more 
aware of the campus. We have 
the prettiest campus in the US, 
besides its being the friendliest. 
I hope that this clean-up will 
help the maintenance crew to 
catch up with their work. I also 
believe that this project will

LODA Day will commence at 
2:00 P.M. Besides historic 
relics, paintings, and antiques, 
which will be displayed at the 
Roque House on the riverbank, 
an afternoon of activities has

candies, and jellies will be on 
sale during the afternoon, also. 
At 5:00 p.m. there will be a 
dinner of beef, red beans, and 
rice, a specialty of the Student 
Union Cafeteria. This dinner is 
the big bargain of the day: $1.00 
per ticket for adults, and 50 
cents for children aged 12 and 
under. The dinner ticket offers 
also a raffle ticket for the raffle 
at 7:00, where gift certificates 
from $10 - $25 from the stores in 
Natchitoches, luggage, jewelry, 
radios, electric hair dryers,

Parking Problems 

«-» overrun 
I . teetings 

Disturbs StuaentgE. 

by Mack Green 

Ted Wright, the business 
manager at NSU, Dean Fulton, 
and Campus Security have 
become aware of the parking 
problem at the Rapides parking 
lot and are now attempting to 
alleviate its congestion and lack 
of order. 

The Rapides lot which is a 
large gravelled unmarked area 
that invites unorderly and 
congestive parking will be 
blacktopped and parking spaces 
will be marked off by the end of 
the school year, according to 
Mr. Wright, business manager. 
Mr. Wright said the delay in 
improving the lot is because the 
blacktopping can only take 
place in warm weather which 
would be in the spring semester. 
He also explained that he had 
been aware of the lot's problem 
for a long time. He had been 
unable to act because he did not 
know how large the budget cut 
for his department would be. 

The Dean of Students at NSU, 
Dean Fulton, said that the basis 
of the problem at the Rapides 
parking lot was "the student's 
desire to get close to the 
Rapides dormitory and Iber- 
ville cafeteria." The un- 
coordinated influx of cars to one 
particular end of the lot causes 
situations in which some cars 
are unable to exit. 

Congestion at the Rapides 
parking lot is typical of other 
lots on campus and the campus 
streets as well, Dean Fulton 
said. He announced the 
possibility of immobilizing most 
of the traffic on campus bet- 
ween class breaks if the con- 
dition continues to worsen. This 
would be done by closing off 
Sibley Drive from the traffic 
light at the intersection of 
Caspari Street and Sibley Drive 
to the Rapides parking lot 
during each break between 
class, according to Dean

Haag Speaks On Culture 
To Large NSU Audience 

By Gayle Palmer 

"If I have a message, and I 
don't think I do, it would be that 
cultural change is inevitable 
and the important thing is to get 
ready for it." said Dr. William 
G. Haag, Jr. 

Dr. Haag spoke at an All- 
University Assembly 

HALL OF FAME-Northwestern's new Hall of Fame members, Walter P. Ledet, 
E. H. GUson, and Charles F. "Red" Thomas, all of Natchitoches were inducted 
into the shrine at 10 a.m. Nov. 14 in the N Club Room in Prather Coliseum. Later 
that day they were presented plaques during halftime ceremonies at Nor- 
thwestern's Homecoming game. Other members recognized at this time were C. 
E. Barham of Ruston, Harry Turpin of Natchitoches, Murphy Rogers of Grand 
Cane and A. A. Barnard of Ruston. 

Preliminaries Held 
In 'Bracelet' Pageant 

Ralph Nader 
To Appear 
December 14 

Assembly Committee 
Chairman Dr. Donald Hatley 
announced this week that the 
first program of the 
Distinguished Speaker Series 
will be presented Monday, Dec. 
14, featuring Ralph Nader, the 
"Consumer Crusader." 

Hatley held a sub-committee 
meeting, composed of SGA 
members who will be respon- 
sible for organizing the day-long 
program. Those present were 
David Precht, SGA President; 
Jack Hoffstadt, SGA vice 
president; Johnny Hebert 
parliamentarian; and Greg 
O'Quin, Sophomore Class 

Tentative plans include a 
banquet for Nader Monday

Dirt Paths Give Way 
To Rugged Concrete 


By Charles Herring 

Following in the footsteps of 
the students, the Maintenance 
Department began work 
Wednesday on two 
sidewalks, according to 
Wright, Business Manager 

"We wait until we see where 
the students are going to walk, 
and then that is where we put 
the sidewalks." Wright said. 

One sidewalk will run bet- 
ween Williamson Hall and the 
new Biology building. The other 
walk will run from the Biology 
building to the Arts and 
Sciences building. Both 
sidewalks will follow dirt paths 
made by the students. 

One sidewalk will run bet- 
ween Williamson Hall and the 
new Biology building. The other 

walk will run from the Biology 
building to the Arts and 
Sciences building. Both 
sidewalks will follow dirt paths 
made by the students. 

"We hope to pour the concrete 
this week," Wright said. 

The sidewalks should be 
completed by the middle of next 
week if the weather stays clear, 
Wright remarked. 

The sidewalks will be raised 
three to four inches above the 
ground. This should prevent 
water from flooding the 
sidewalks when it rains, he 
pointed out. 

"We are also in the process of 
placing lights between Caldwell 
Hall and the library building," 
Wright added. 

Bracelet Pageant to be held on 
December 9. At that time, they 
will be scored in evening gown, 
swimsuit, and talent com- 
petition. This year's pageant is 
under the sponsorship of the 
NSU Union Board. 

The school's beauty pageant 
has been changed this year to 
meet the requirements set up by 
Miss America rules. The new 
Lady of the Bracelet will 
compete in the 1971 Miss 
Louisiana Pageant, and the first 
runner-up will go on to the 1971 
Miss Holiday In Dixie Pageant. 

Judges for this year's pageant 
are Jim Dimos, Curtis Rape, 
Ann Shapiro, Dixie Ware, and 
Marilyn Stevens. Dimos of 
Monroe is the 1971 director of 
the Miss Louisiana Pageant, 
and Rape, also of Monroe, is the 
production director of this state 
pageant. Miss Shapiro is a well- 
known television personality 
and fashion designer from 
Alexandria. Mrs. Stevens is 
director of the Marilyn Stevens 
School of Dance in Leesville and 
has worked with the Miss 
Leesville-Vernon Parish 
Pageant as well as pageants in 
both Natchitoches and 
Beauregard parishes. 

New Program 
Provides Aid 
To Students 

Student Body President 
David Precht announced 
Monday night plans for the 
Student Government 
Association project concerning 
"Crisis Intervention." 

Precht said that the program 
will provide a "hot line" service 
for students in need of 
professional counseling by 
highly qualified members of the 
medical, psychological, and 
sociological professions. The 
service is projected to be in 
operation by the Christmas 
holidays, and will be in 
operation on a 24-hour basis. 

The increased psychological 
burdens born by today's college 
students is are creating an 
unprecedented number of 
problems for those students, 
and it is the responsibility of the 
SGA to provide help for those in 
need," Precht said. According 
to Dean of Students Dudley 
Fulton, there is an average of at 
least one suicide attempt per 
month on this campus-another 
reason for establishing the hot 
line program. 

The program will also be set 
up to help students overcome 1 
problems in other areas, in- 
cluding drug abuse, marital and 
pre-marital problems, and 
other socio-psychological 

The SGA referred the 
proposal to the Student Services 
Committee, chaired by Jack 
Hoffstadt, SGA vice president. 
Hoffstadt added that a com- 
mittee meeting will be held with 
members of the Sociology 
Department, Psychology 
Department, Interested 
Students, and representatives 
from the medical profession, 
during which plans will be 
formulated and refined. 

November 18, in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium. He served as the 
first featured speaker 
presented in the Distinguished 
Lecture Series. Haag was co- 
sponsored by the Departments 
of Sociology and Social Work 
and Social Sciences in af- 
filiation with the All-University 
Lecture Series Committee. 

Alumni Professor of An- 
thropology at Louisiana State 
University Dr. Haag styled 
himself "a profit of the future." 
He spoke on "The Role of the 
Student in Social Change." 

Dr. Haag said that the biggest 
problem facing man was the 
change in culture which he said 
to be inevitable. He went on to 
say that "students should knock 
naivete out of the heads of the 
parents-it is not a simple world. 
They cannot return to the past. 
Culture has changed in an or- 
derly fashion in the past, and 
culture will change in an or- 
derly fashion in the future." 

Haag felt that the "establish- 
ment" should realize that 
changes would come. He also 
stated that a generation gap did 
exist and that this gap was a 
good, and not a bad, idea. 

"If there were not a 
generation gap, this would 
mean the world had come to a 
halt." The new generations 
make change possible through 
addition of new ideas, according 
to Haag. 

Dr. Haag answered several 
questions in an interview after 
his lecture. When asked what 
students could do to bring about 
effective social change, Dr. 
Haag replied, "students should 
not militantly agitate, but in- 
stead, participate in programs 
which will alleviate the 
problems." He felt that students 
should volunteer to be a part of 
helping through social and 
hospital work, " anything that 
brings about more awareness. 
Students then become a voice 
and will be more receptive to 
new ideas." 

Most campuses consist of 
apathetic students, said Haag. 
"The one who bucks the ad- 
ministration becomes the rarity 
and stands out, getting all the 

A greater concern for the 
welfare of all people will be a 
prevailing change in the future. 
People will no longer be living 
in blind oblivion to inequalities.

What Do You Think? 

By D. Jarzabek 

Why do students choose 
Northwestern as their college? 
Here are a few reasons. 

"I first came here with my 
brother for the State Science 
Fair. I liked the way it looked 
and wanted a small college. I 
went home and checked into it 
and found it had a good 
education department, which 
was what I was going into." 
Diana Landesman, Slidell, La. 

"I had a friend of mine who 
came here. I didn't go to Nor- 
theast because my sister is 
there and Tech is dry. I fell in 
love with Maggio's." Berny 
Wait, Shreveport, La. 

"I wanted to go to a foreign 
country, especially one known 
for its science, since my career 
will be in Industrial 
Technology. I first went to LSU, 
but it was too big. You need an 
atmosphere more like home." 
Ferando Fiallos, Honduras. 

"I came here because when I 
first came up with my high 
school band for a music festival, 
I liked it. I was impressed with 
the friendly atmosphere and 
found out they had a good 
education department too. But 
mostly because of the warm 
atmosphere." Susie Haynes, 
Springhill, La. 

"I saw it first in the ninth 
grade and decided then it was 
where I wanted to go. I never 
wanted to go to a Texas school 
and it's cheaper." Yvonne 
McLamore, Freeport. La. 

"I came here to get out of my 
hometown. It's so small, it isn't 
even on the map yet." Jan 
Thompson, Sikes, La. 

"I figured it was the best out 
of the Louisiana colleges. At 
USL, I knew I would party too 
much. I didn't go to LSU 
because it's in my hometown 
and I ruled out the other 
colleges. I also have some 
kinfolk here. I came up to look 
at the campus and it looked 
good. But I'd like to retract that 
first statement though. After 
two years, I don't like NSU 
anymore." David Harding, 
Baton Rouge, La.

On behalf of the Student 
Government Association and 
the entire student body of 
Northwestern State University, 
I feel it is my obligation to voice 
our disgust with the treatment 
of NSU and the other state- 
funded institutions of higher 

W. W. McDougal, Com- 
missioner of Administration 
directed a 15 per cent reduction 
in the budgets of state colleges 
and universities in a state 
economy move to trim the state 
deficit. Northwestern 's share of 
the cutback is $60,263.00. 

Last spring, students and 
alumni from all state in- 
stitutions expressed their 
concern over the portion of state 
funds allocated to higher 
education. Certainly that 
concerted cry for help had no 
small effect on the much needed 
increase in funds. 

Now, in light of that recent 
■•eduction in our allocated 
funds, I feel it is time once again 
that the state administration 
heeds our appeals. 

After the increase in Nor- 
thwestern 's budget was an- 
nounced last spring, and plans 
were made for using that in- 
crease to catch up "in areas 
where financial deficiencies 
were necessarily imposed," it is 
announced that not all of that 

By David Precht 

money would be coming to 
Northwestern. This lack of 
foresight in budgeting can only 
be taken by us as an affront to 
integrity of our university. 

It also shows us that 
Louisiana's state ad- 
ministrators (from the 
Governor on down) care very 
little that this state consistently 
ranks near the bottom of the list 
in education in the United 
States. It shows us that they are 
oblivious of the necessity that 
we strive for academic ex- 
cellence while they acquiesce in 
the stagnation of higher 
education through the 
tightening of the purse strings. 

We, the students of NSU, like 
those students at other state 
colleges and universities, will 
not tolerate broken promises, 
negative attitudes toward 
higher education, and 
allocations which are per- 
petually too little, too late. 

We have been slighted far too 
long, and will express our 
dissatisfaction in future state 
elections, unless a more 
positive attitude toward our 
state institutions is quickly 

In the meantime, we will 
unite with student bodies across 
the state in an effort to return to 
our college coffers the funds 
which are rightfully and 
necessarily ours. 

The State Of The Union 

by Val Marmillion 

The Union Board here at 
N.S.U. is an active member of 
the Association of College 
Unions - International. This 
outreaching association serves 
college and university Unions 
throughout the United States 
and Canada. The statement of 
purpose, which this Association 
adopted in 1956 and reaffirmed 
in 1963, says that a union today 
is a building, an organization, 
and a program, all of which 
combine to make a community 
center providing services as 
well as education. This idea is 
practiced and preached by the 
national office as well as the 
many regional organizations. 

In an attempt to keep all 
unions in the nation informed on 
pertinent matters, the 
Association of College Unions - 
International (ACU-I) sent 
various forms of literature to its 
member schools throughout the 
year. One publication is the 
Union Wire that is publisshed 
about eight times a year. This 
four page newsletter concerns 
itself with topics on world and 
national issues, student views 
and opinions, editorials, trends 
that are now appearing on the 
student level, and information 
concerning upcoming national 
and regional conferences and 

Another publication by ACU-I 
is the National Bulletin. This 
bulletin, published each month, 
is filled with exciting new ideas 
in programming Union 
projects. It also contains very 
interesting articles, ranging 
from campus demonstrations to 
White House Policy. The 
National Bulletin also 
represents growth records of 
various university Unions and 
expanded programs with a 
variety of emphasis. In each 
edition there contains pictures 
of new Union buildings and the 
facilities these complexes offer. 
Many Unions submit articles 
pertaining to their particular 
college that could benefit 
others.. . 

ACU-I also holds an In- 
ternational convention each 
spring. This conference offers 
delegates from around the 
nation a chance to meet and 
discuss areas of related in- 
terest. The conference also 
touches on areas of discontent 
surrounding many programs. 
In summary, the ACU-I is a 
vital instrument in preparing 
and staging Union program- 
ming. It offers a variety of ideas 
and information to its member 
schools and creates a unifying 
bond of association. 

News And Views 

"Speed Kills" has been the 
favorite slogan of those who 
oppose the drug culture. Now 
there is documented evidence 
that this slogan is true. 

A team of Los Angeles doctors 
has discovered speed causes a 
lethal disease of the arteries. 
The disease is called 
necrotizing angiitis. The 
disorder involves a progressive 
inflammation of the medium 
and small arteries through-out 
the body. The common result of 
this disease is permanent 
damage ot the kidneys, in- 
testines, liver and pancreas. 

In four cases out of fourteen, 
the disease proved fatal. 
Patients, including men and 
women, had used a wide range 
of drugs, from hashish to LSD. 

The most likely cause of 
angiitis appears to be 
methamphetamine. It is the 
most common ingredient found 
in a wide range of drugs. 
Doctors fear that speed-induced 
angiitis may become a national 
health problem among drug 
users. The use of metham- 
phetamine is rising - new cases 
are turning up at Los Angeles 
County Hospital, where 
research is conducted, at the 
rate of at least one a week 

One question remains 
unanswered. If angiitis is so 
commonly caused by many 
drugs, can it be found in the 
drugs prescribed by doctors? 
Perhaps this could be the 
reason fvr so many individuals 
turning to drugs. Many of them 
may have unwittingly become 
addicted through prescription 
drugs. Many addictive drugs 
have been discovered bv the 

medical profession, and ap- 

By Carl Silverstein 

propriately handled. There are 
many other drugs that are 
definitely in need of study to 
determine their complete ef- 

A sweeping revision of lax 
laws that allow fly-by-night 
drugs onto the market is in 
order. All too often are drugs 
recalled from the public market 
because they are found to be 
harmful - usually after many 
have been affected. A repetition 
of incidents as discovered with 
Thalidomide would be 

Thalidomide was the wonder 
drug that everyone could take 
as a sleeping pill with ab- 
solutely no harmful effects. 
Years later it was discovered 
that this harmless pill horribly 
deformed the yet unborn when 
taken during pregnancy. The 
pill had been rushed onto the 
market with only a short 
amount of time spent in 

There are some draw-backs 
to withholding a drug from the 
public market. The time 
element is the most important 
factor. Suppose, in a 
hypothetical case, that many 
people were dying of an in- 
curable disease and a new 
wonder drug had been 
discovered that might help 
them. Would it be ethical to 
withhold this drug from them 
because not enough time had 
been spent in research? 

The American public is 
responsible for this decision. 
This issue should be fully aired 
before the public by qualified 
physicians. Doctors prescribe 
these drugs, pharmacists sell 
these drugs, but you are the one 
who will take these drugs.

Speaks Against Songs 

Agnew Again 

By Hershal Chapman 

Vice President Spiro T. 
Agnew, speaking fairly recently 
at a Las Vegas Republican 
fund-raising dinner, lashed out 
against popular songs with 
obvious drug implications. 

Some of the songs he men- 
tioned were, "A Little Help 
From My Friends," "White 
Rabbit," and "Don't Step on 
The Grass, Sam." 

Agnew said, "You need a 
congress that would see to it 
that the wave of per- 
missiveness, the wave of por- 
nography, and the wave of 
moral pollution never become 
the wave of the future in this 

O.K., the implication is made. 
Congress should pass some laws 
to stop the so-called "wave." 
Would there be freedom of 
speech and press in this country 
if Agnew had his way? Whether 
or not he seriously believes he 
can achieve this, I don't know. 
More than likely it is just a vote- 
getting move. But the fact 
remains that he did imply this, 
and there are people who take 
him seriously. 

Take it personally. Suppose it 
was against the law to listen to 

your favorite song, "White 
Rabbit." Suppose also that you 
are not a drug user, (actually 
it's irrelevent, but just sup- 
pose), and you liked the song for 
its artistic and musical 
qualities. You may feel a bit 
oppressed ... maybe you are not 
really free. 

That situation is not so far- 
fetched. On the contrary it 
would probably be com- 
monplace if Agnew had his way. 
If this article seems elemen- 
tary, that is because the 
argument of freedom of speech 
and press is very simple and 
easy to grasp. There is no need 
to over intellectualize the issue. 
Agnew is hardly guilty of this. 
He seems to be very basic and 
feels no qualms at name- 

Perhaps it's respect for the 
office Agnew holds, or just the 
little tinge of journalistic pride

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie Broel 

A women's liberation movement has taken 
place on the Northwestern campus. 

Tuesday night at 7:30 a large group of girls, 
concerned with women's regulations on this 
campus, assembled at a special Associated 
Women Students (AWS) meeting to discuss 
changes they thought should be made. They 
drew up a list of proposed changes to be sent to 
the administration for approval. 

Many of the things the group voted on can be 
agreed with whole-heartedly, but a few of the] 
proposed changes are a little too much. The 
change that is most disagreeable is the one abouti 
allowing rolled-up hair outside the dormj 
although it was agreed that girls would not wean 
their hair rolled to class or in the dining halls J 
Can you imagine seeing girls running around! 
campus with their hair in rollers? How would the 
boys react to a sight that looks like some gadget! 
wired to receive radar signals? In this age of! 
hair dryers, electric curlers, and wigs, there is 
really no need to run around looking like ai 
creature from outer space. 

Another proposed change is to have no dress 
regulations. Why place restrictions on dress 
lengths, wearing pant suits, or even jeans, but 
something should be added to this regulation 
saying that shorts should not be worn to class, to, 
the library, or in the Administration Building 
Shorts are for recreation and activities along this] 
line and should not be worn in classrooms anr| 
other places centered around this idea. 

One of the changes that will be made, shouldf 
these regulations pass the administration, is the 
revision to be made in signing in and out ~ & 
problem which has plagued NSU coeds for agesj 

Another would-be change is the abolishing of 
strict campus', a change which, if made, will be 
one more step in the right direction. 

Other proposed revisions are to have room 
check abolished, longer library hours, allowing 
21-year-olds to live off-campus if they wish, and 
in general obtaining a little privacy and freedom 
which is taken for granted in most places and 
guaranteed in the United States Constitution. 

In this modern world of progress, thought, and 
higher education where more is now expected of 
women than raising children and cleaning house] 
it only stands to reason that fewer restrictions bq 
placed on girls of college age. 

Along with others on this campus, I urge th„ 
passing of these changes, or at least the majority 
of them, to help take NSU coeds out of the dark 
ages and put them into the light - even if the light 
will be a little dim. 



Despite numerous slightly 
veiled threats to my person 
since my first "Muckraker" 
column, I have decided to carry 
on, fighting and exposing 
ignorance, corruption, and 
ineptitude wherever and 
whenever I find it (just like 
Superman, I suppose). 

'Though the lack of sport- 
smanship I observed on the part 
of some of our Demon football 
players disgusted me last 
Saturday afternoon, I will 
refrain from discussing other 
facets of our performance 
against USL - mainly because 
this topic has already become 

The lack of spirit displayed by 
the NSU band left quite a bit to 
be desired during that game ... 
even before the referees told the 
musicians to cool it. Must the 
tempo of their music go steadily 
down as our chances for victory 
become more remote? I had a 
decidedly different sensation 
when the McNeese band (even 
though they too lost their game) 
announced that they would 
provide a 15 minute concert 
AFTER the end of the game. 
That could be a healthy 
example to follow. 

It appears that many 
progressive changes are going 
to be wrought in the area of 
regulations for NSU women. 
But before a particular 
situation I am about to expose 
becomes lost in that shuffle, I 
feel I must relate something 
told to me by several creditable 

A few weeks ago, a freshman 
coed was required to appear 
before the AWS Judiciary 
Board because she returned to 
her dorm one and one-half hours 
past the curfew hour. She was 

given a penalty of seven days on 
'strict campus,' a severe form 
of punishment for any rule 

Another coed appearing 
before the Board, received the 
same penalty for also coming in 
one and one-half hours late. The 
latter decision, however was 
changed to only five days of 
'campus,' a decidedly lighter 

The disparity in these two 
penalties for the same 'crime' is 
pronounced enough, but con- 
sider two more recent decisions 
by that same judiciary body. 
Two coeds appeared before the 
JD Board this week, both for 
returning to the dorm two hours 
past curfew, and yet, one 
received four restrictions while 
the other was given three 

What extenuating cir- 
cumstances could have caused 
such a great difference in the 
separate penalties for four very 
similar violations? Could it be 
that four of the six JD Board 
members belong to the same 
social organization, and is this 
representative? Could it be that 
some members of that board 
are unable to set aside personal 
prejudices and ignore pressures 
from the administration? Or 
could it be that this board is 
becoming a great deal more 
realistic and just? I, for one, 
hope it is the latter!

Dear Editor,

Dear Mr. Byrd, 

The world needs more people 
like you. 

Your interest shown in "the 
intelligence level" of some of 
the writers of the Current Sauce 
was surprising. 

Also, few people have the 
ability to judge articles such as 
"Representatives Enjoy North- 
western's Crow." One of the two 
which you mentioned. But you 
are entitled to your own opinion. 

Remember, there are all 
degrees of news which go in to 
make up this "Tragically 
mixed-up world," as you 
referred to it. Just the news that 
you wish to hear will not always 
be printed. 

I wonder if your attempt to 
motivate writers toward more 
controversial subjects, will 
raise "the dignity of the Current 
Sauce. Is controversy really the

keep talking and writing,

however, for your interest

Kappa Sig Captures The Demon League Title 


Kappa Alpha moved into the 
intramural football playoffs this 
week by defeating Pi Kappa Phi 
last Monday. 

KA's turned out in full force 
last Wednesday afternoon to 
participate in the first campus 
Cleanup Day, in conjunction 
with homecoming activities. 
Thursday night, brothers and 
dates met at the KA house to 
work on homecoming 

The brothers wish to cordially 
thank the Kappa Sigmas for a 
warm welcome and a fine time 
enjoyed by some at their 
homecoming functions this past 

The annual Pledge - Active 
football game was held Sunday 
afternoon. The actives 
naturally enjoyed a good 
margin of victory. 

Plans are now underway for 
KA's annual Christmas Formal 
to be held next month. 


Homecoming was a great 
success for the brothers of 
Theta Chi Fraternity. Although 
the weather was a bit dreary for 
the game, the spirit was not. 
The brothers, parents and 
friends all met at the K.C. Home 
for dinner after the game. 

The brothers all took part in 
the university's first annual 
clean-up day last week. We are 
proud of the job we did at Vets 
Town, we raked leaves, moved 
fallen trees and swept the 

Theta Chi placed first among 
the Greeks in a contest spon- 
sored by Maggios' Popsicle 
Store and in overall competition 
placed third. 

This Friday night we are 
invited to the Sweetheart Ball 
given by the Theta Chi chapter 
at Centennary College. We plan 
to return Saturday afternoon to 
support the Demons against 


The weather did not dampen 
the spirit of Delta 'Zeta last 
weekend during the 
homecoming activities. 
Thursday night DZ captured the 
spirit stick along with Sigma 
Sigma Sigma. Friday night we 
added the finishing touches to 
the display with our dates 
assisting us. Really, thanks 
boys for all the time you put in 
during the week. Later that 
night we held our slumber party 
and everyone enjoyed them- 

The DZ Pledges are con- 
ducting a money making 
project. What they plan to do 
with this money seems to be 
some deep dark secret but of 
course the actives will find in 
time being. 

After the pep rally Thursday 
night our president, Pat Tynes 
was given a surprise shower. 
She was presented with various 
household items. Pat is 
marrying Randy Bouknight 
during the Christmas Holidays. 

With the assistance of Rob 
Butler our powder puff 
football team is looking better 
every day. After Thanksgiving 
we will be looking forward to 
playing the other teams. 


Although Homecoming was 
cold and bleak the sounds of 
laughter and warmth filled the 
hearts of Northwestern Tekes of 
Epsilon - Upsilon's after game 
party. Thanks go out to frater 
James Gordon for the use of his 

This week's DOW award goes 
to pledge Doug Boone for his 
ar'ribution to last weekend's

Christmas Dance and several 
service projects with the 
Natchitoches Service League 

to benefit the needy children of 


An open house was held for 
returning alumni after the 
game Saturday. The highlight 
for the weekend for the pledges 
was our slumber party. During 
this party the pledges learned 
who their big sisters were. At 
this time they presented the 
pledges with a paddle Hnd their 
drop letters. 

This year the members if our 
chapter had nr ve been working 
at the Natchitoches Mentally 
Retarded Thrift Shop. Each 
Saturday we work from eight 
till twelve. 


This past week the Pi Kappas 
have been busy working on 
Homecoming activities. With a 
lot of help from our Little 
Sisters, a homecoming display 
was built. 

Saturday night a homecoming 
dance was held at the VFW 
Hall. Afterwards a pledge- 
active party was held . This 
coming week a hayride is 
scheduled for the fraternity. 
The fraternity is also preparing 
for the upcoming "cross 
country" run. 

In intramural' s football we 
finished third overall.

Thanks girls! for working so 
hard on the homecoming

success. We were really proud 
of it! Phi Mu would also like to 

say they were behind the 
Demons all the way and think 
they did a great job even if the 
score did not say so. Saturday 
evening after the game, Phi Mu 
gave a tea at the house honoring 

all alumnae. The tea was a 
success and it was really good 
to see everyone again. 

Tonight Phi Mu is having a

A Girl Named George? 

By Bessie Brock 

She's not a boy named Sue, 
but a girl named George! 

Billie George Jones. But she 
is no relation to the famous 
country and western singer, 
George Jones, although she 
bears his name. 

Like George Jones, however, 
Billie is a singer. But she 
doesn't confine her warbling to 
any one type of song. 

"I like anything from folk to 
light rock, including pop and 
bluegrass," she said recently, 
lying casually on her bed while 
Tom Jones sang on a disk in the 

"Whatever I like and can do, I 
do it - no matter what category 
it's in," she added "I listen to 
the words of a song more than to 
the music." 

Billie, a petite 23 year old 
blond, plays the banjo, guitar, 
or mandolin to accompany her 
singing. Her favorite in- 
strument is her banjo, given to 
her by an aunt and uncle when 
she was 12. She learned the 
basic chords from a book and 
taught herself the remainder 
with the help of her father, who 
is also musically inclined. 

Billie s guitar was a birthday 
gift from her parents and she 
learned to play it without help 
from others. Her father taught 
her to play the mandolin which 
he hand-carved when he was 16, 
along with one of the four fid- 
dles he owns. 

"I've always been musically 
inclined,"Billie admits. "In the 
first grade I sang in front of my 


class and in the second grade I 
sang in front of the whole 
school." When she was 16, Billie 
made her first public ap- 
pearance, playing her banjo 
and singing in a high school 
variety show. 

For her talent and efforts, 
Billie has won many honors and 
awards. While in high school at 
Rosepine she competed in the 
West Louisiana Forestry 
Festival talent show and won 
the first place trophy. She also 
entered the District 4-H talent 
show and won the first prize in 

Billie has sung in many local 
shows in her hometown of 
DeRidder. She has sung at 
private parties, meetings, in 
parades, and at group 
gatherings while attending

To Be Held 

Woody Guthrie is generally 
recognized as the father of 
American folk song. Few poets 
have been able to capture the 
pulse of America as Guthrie 
did. A generation of song 
writers have learned from him - 
- Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, The 
Weavers, Bob Dylan, his son 
Arlo - to name just a few. 

Guthrie was a man born with 
a burning curiosity to learn, 
who early developed a great 
love for America and its people. 
An itmerant from Oklahoma, he 
travelled throughout this 
country in boxcars and on foot, 
often without a penny in his 
pocket. Crossing the Oklahoma 
plains, wandering the moun- 
tains of California and visiting 
the cold canyons of Manhattan, 
Woody constantly observed the 
changing vistas of this land and 
the personalities of its people. 
As he travelled, he wrote songs 
about what he saw and with 
guitar slung over his shoulder 
he sang these songs wherever 
he went. "This Land Is Your 
Land," "So Long, It's Been 

Train is Bound for Glory" are 
only a few of the 1,000 songs he 
composed and performed - all 
reflecting his great love for 
America and its people. 

Woody Guthrie's songs are 
only part of his legacy. In 1943 
at age 31 and at the height of his 
career, Guthrie published his 
autobiography, BOUND FOR 
GLORY. In marvelously vivid 
colloquial language, Woody 
tells of his early years in 
Oklahoma where he was raised 
in a small town and came from 
very poor beginnings. Woody 
was a spokesman for the 
downtrodden and as he takes us 
on his travels across this 
country, we come to know those 
other men who traveled in 
boxcars, we meet the workers 
in the railroad yards, the 
migrant fruit laborers, and the 
homeless who roam the 
boweries of every city. Through 
Woody, we taste the grit of the 
Oklahoma Dust Bowl and see 
the beauty of the Redwood

by vast changes in the habitat.

Northwestern Cagers Look 
Good at Preseason Glance 

By Lynn Rollins 

With the opening tipoff less 
than two weeks away, cage boss 
Tynes Hildebrand has a lot of 
"ifs, ands and buts" about the 
approaching season. 

"If we snoot as well as we 
have been in practice, and play 
heads-up defense, we'll be 
representative. But, our 
schedule is very challenging 
and the conference is extremely 
strong, "Hildebrand stated. 

The Demons open Dec. 1 
against Tulane in New Orleans 
before tackling mighty Houston 
to complete an eary road swing. 

The Purple and White have 
been working out almost five 
weeks in anticipation of bet- 
tering last year's 13-13 record 
and fourth place finish in the 
Gulf States Conference. 

Hildebrand commented about 
practice so far, "I'm satisfied 
with the pre-season work. 
We've installed almost all our 
offensive and defensive pat- 
terns and the team is shooting 

Torrid Shooting 

Last Saturday Northwestern 

held an intra-squad scrimmage 
and the team shot over 60 per 
cent from the field. "It almost 
scared me," assistant Don 
Beasley admitted, "I've never 
seen a team score like that for a 
whole scrimmage." 

The Demons get a chance to 
compete in a game-type 
scrimmage today when they 
meet Henderson St. in 
Arkadelphia, Ark. 

The big question in the minds 
of the coaching staff is whether 
the void left by the departure of 
Charles Bloodworth can be 
filled. Bloodworth, at 6-8, led the 
Demons in scoring and 
rebounding a year ago, but 
more important was in- 
timidating in the middle. 

Without a man over 6-5 on the 
varsity roster, Hildebrand has 
had to change his stragedy 

"We'll still fast break when 
we get the chance, but we'll 
wait for the good shot when a 
break isn't available," the 
Demon mentor said.

Vega Named U. S. Coach 
For Pan American Games 

Northwestern State 
University's Armando Vega has 
been voted coach of the United 
States' gymnastic team in the 
Pan American Games this 
summer in Cali, Columbia. 

Vega, who last spring guided 
Northwestern to its fifth con- 
secutive NAIA championship, 
learned of his selection last 
weekend while attending a 
meeting of the United States 
Olympic Committee in Kansas 

"I feel very honored to be 
voted to this position," said 
Vega. "It's really something to 
know you've been chosen above 
all other coaches in the United 
States, and to know you'll be 
coaching the athletes who will 
eventually be representing our 
country in the Olympics." 

The Pan American Games 
are scheduled to begin in July. 
Earlier in the summer the 

United States will hold tryouts 
in Miami, Florida to determine 
berths on the respective teams. 

Vega, a native of Los Angeles, 
graduated from Penn State, 
where he won the NCAA 
University Division all-around 
gymnastic championships in 


1957 and 1959. He participated in 
the 1956 and 1960 Olympics. 

He coached at the University 
of Mexico and directed 
Mexico's Olympic efforts, prior 
to coming to Northwestern 
State in 1967. 

Vega is also being considered 
as a coach for the United States' 
1972 Olympic team. Nor- 
thwestern had a participant in 
the 1968 Olympics-Richard

At one point Mark Fleege 
suggested that the people at- 
tending Free Speech Alley on 
Tuesday should meet the next 
night so discussion would follow 
only after knowing all the facts 
of the AWS meeting. The motion 
was not carried through. 

One basic question asked 
during the meeting was what 
would happen to these points of 
women's regulations approved 
by the AWS. Precht answered 
that the AWS's recom- 
mendations would be sent to the 
administration. The length of 
time for the administration's 
approval could not be deter- 
mined. Precht commented, "I 
don't think I'm being too op- 
tomistic in saying that the 
recommendations have a good 
chance of being approved by the 

Mark Fleege spoke to the 
group about how some of the 
ideas could be killed in com- 
mittees. Precht stated that 
though the committees were 
formed, it was only to make the 
meeting organized and not to 
kill any motions. 

Another speaker asked how 
long would it be before the 
recommendations would 
become effective if they were 
approved. Precht answered 
that they could be effective 
immediately as it is not 
necessary to print the changes 
in the AWS handbook. 

LISL was recognized as the 
moving force behind the AWS 
meeting at Free Speech Alley. 
Bob Fleege stated it offered a

Another member of the group 
asked if the AWS was formed as 
an arm of the administration to

Precht commented, "Well, I 
wasn't around when they for- 
med it, but it is a farce to have 
three forms of government. One 
for the students, one for the 
men, and another for the 
women." Precht went on to say 
though that the AWS has been 
trying to help women students. 

Other speakers stated that 
they would like to see more 
correlation of action between 
the AWS and LISL.

ROTC Now Hearing 
Feminine Patter 

By Gary Estess

Cadet reaction to this female 
invasion of their organization 
has been good with the boys 
helping the girls like any other 
member of the Corps. The 
ladies receive no special 
privileges or concessions. 

Regular Army instructors see 
feminine enrollment as a way of 
better communicating the 
mission of the military in 
national affairs and improving 
civilian relations. Asked what 
she had gained from ROTC, 
Miss Culpepper felt she has 
learned to think for herself and 

Marching feet and shrill 
commands are not the only 
sounds that greet the visitor 
these days to Northwestern 's 
ROTC Armory. The smell of 
perfume and laughter of 
feminine voices are slowly 
becoming part of this 
traditional all-male 

Two NSU coeds, Louise 
Hudson of Natchitoches and 
Jimmie Culpepper of Coushatta 
have been, this semester, in 
Military Science 101. Their 
presence, although not designed 
as a women's liberation cam- 
paign on ROTC, has further 
emphasized the role of women 
in every phase of American life. 

As first year Military Science 
students the girls have been 
instructed in rifle 
marksmanship, first aid, and 
the Army's place in the 
National Defense structure. 

When asked why she joined 
ROTC Miss Culpepper, a fresh- 
man nursing major, explained 
that after one year of high 
school ROTC, she decided to 
pursue military in college 
because she liked the "at- 
mosphere." She said, "By first 
learning to be a follower before 
becoming a leader, I felt I could 
be more proficent in my chosen 

Miss Hudson, a sophomore 
majoring in secretarial science 
and known by her friends as 
"Dee Dee," said, "I realized the - 
value of ROTC training with it's 
self-discipline and the fact it's 
an easy way to pick up 2 hours 
credit. My brother, Frank, went 
through the program as a 
member of the Black Knights 
and graduated from Nor- 

Cadets Utilize 
Flight Program 

Five members of the Reserve 
Officers Training Corps at 
Northwestern State University 
are participating this semester 
in the Army ROTC Flight In- 
struction Program. 

Students in the second year of 
the ROTC advanced course are 
eligible for participation in the 
flight training program. 

Directing the flight program 
at Northwestern is Capt Hugh C 
Durham, assistant professor of 
military science. Durham, a 
Shreveport native, is a Nor- 
thwestern graduate and Viet- 
nam veteran. He is rated in both 
helicopter and fixed wing craft. 

Cadets are utilizing the 
equipment and facilities of the 
Natchitoches Flying Service 
and the Natchitoches Airport. 

During the program, cadets 
will receive 35 hours of ground 
instruction and 36 hours of in- 
flight instruction. Teaching the 
courses are faculty members in 
Northwestern's aviation 
science program in the College 
of Science and Technology. 

Funds for all flight in- 
struction, textbooks, 
navigational equipment, flight 
clothing and transportation to 
the flying school are made 
available by the U.S. Army. 

Northwestern's flight training 
program is approved by the . 
Federal Aviation Agency and 
the U.S. Department of the 




accept responsibility as op- 
posed to before she enrolled. 

Reflecting, Miss Hudson said 
"Not only have I learned to 
shoot straight and button all my 
buttons, but I've become more 
patriotic. That may sound 
ridiculous and old-fashioned, 
yet once I saw the other point of 
view I felt closer to my country* 

Both girls agree that ROTC 
provides opportunities such as 
extra pay, flight training, and 
management training which 
make it worthwhile for anybody 
in college. 

So perhaps as time goes on 
ROTC will continue to take on a 
pretty side.

Consider for a moment. 

Suppose you were the poorest man 
in all America. Without shoes. Ade- 
quate clothing or housing. Without 
education. Ill fed. Sick. Maligned. 

What would you have to be thank- 
ful for while most of the rest of 
America was sitting down to a fat 
turkey dinner? 

You would still have the breath 
of God in your lungs. 

You would still have that most 
beautiful gift of all gifts, the 
ability to hope. 

You would still pos 
sess God's love. 

But very probably, since 
you're reading this news- 
paper, you're not the poor- 
est man in all America. 

It's likely you have a 
television set. 

A warm bed to 
sleep in. 

A happy feast to share with rela- 
tives and friends this Thanksgiving 

In short— lucky you— you do, in- 
deed have a lot to thank God for. 

And while you're thanking God, 
don't forget to thank Him for yet 
another gift He's given you. The 
ability to help others. The desire 
to share. To open your heart and 
your hand and your mind to 
someone, somewhere, who just 
might not be quite as lucky 
as you are. 

Think. If everybody ex- 
ercised this wonderful gift, 
imagine how much more 
this old world 
would have to

NSU Reflects 
Unusual Quiet 

By Mack Green 

Investigations by campus 
officials at NSU a few weeks 
ago led to the seizure of what 
was believed to be marijuana on 
campus. However, chemical 
analysis of 6-8 ounces of the 
weed revealed that it was bay 
leaves and ground alfalfa, 
according to Campus Security 
Chief, James Lee. 

The investigation involved 
approximately four NSU 
students. No charges were filed. 

The discovery of the supposed 
marijuana being bay leaves and 
ground alfalfa in this one in- 
vestigation reflects the unusual 
quiet of the semester. 

In an interview with Chief Lee 
he said, "This has been a 
gracious semester so far. There 
have been a lot of school ac- 
tivities on campus such as 
football games, dances, and 
special programs and a 
minimum of trouble has ac- 
companied these activities." 
"Thefts on campus are also 
down this semester," Chief Lee 

A rash of troubles involving 
students usually starts around 
the first of a semester, but the 
troubles usually level off at 
midterm. At the end of a 

semester problems with 
students seem to flare up again, 
according to Chief Lee. Chief 
Lee said he hoped the unusual 
quiet at NSU extends 
throughout the semester.

Natchitoches Bustles 
With Yuletide Spirit 

By Vicki Prather 

The oldest town in the 
Louisiana Purchase, will soon 
be dressed in all of the splendor 
of Christmas, as the forty fourth 
annual Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival makes its debut, to 
formally greet the season. It 
will be held this year on Sat. 
Dec. 5. 

This time of year, the most 
beautiful age of life, is 
traditional around the world. 
But, somehow, in Natchitoches 
it will be different in its own 
happy way. Beautiful sincerity, 
and heartwarming reverence 
will be shown through "the city 
of charm." 

It was 44 years ago that the 
late Max Burgdorf, who was 
then serving as city superin- 
tendent of utilities, thought of a 
street and river lighting 
program. He believed it would 
be a means of expressing the 
holiday feelings of all Nat- 
chitoches residents. 

It was then that Burgdorf 
built the first setpiece the Star 
of the East, measuring eight 
feet across. This star has 
remained as only one of the 
many pieces now in use. 

NSU To Host 

Northwestern will host the 
annual Louisiana Student Body 
Presidents Conference on 
Monday, Dec. 7. Presidents 
representing student 
organizations from all 
Louisiana state schools and 
several private college and 
universities have been invited 
to attend the conference. 

The conference will be a joint 
meeting of Louisiana deans, 
IFC presidents and student 
union presidents. The three 
groups of representatives will 
meet separately to discuss 
topics relevant to student 
government, such as 
possibilities of the 18 year old 
vote, and ways to motivate 
students to vote for it. Other 
planned discussions will in- 
clude: finances, campus 
government, student par- 
ticiation in government, and 
academic decision making. 

Registration will begin at 9:00 
Monday morning, in the SGA 
conference room of the Student 
Union Building. Discussions 
will be held from 9:30 a.m. till 
3:00 p. m. The last portion of the 
program will be a general 
session with all representing 
presidents, deans, and other 
administrators attending. 

Since its modest beginning in 
1927, more than 175,000 tiny 
bulbs light the city from the 
first Sat. in Dec., until the day 
after New Years. 

Charles R. Soloman, the city's 
chief electrican has built some 
setpieces, which are now 
displayed on the Cane River's 
east bank. Soloman and a crew 
of 12 men start work early in 
Sept. stringing lights along the 
river bank and city streets. This 
task requires about 10 weeks to 

The lighting program covers 
approximately 30 blocks of the 
downtown area, the river bank, 
the bridges across Cane River, 
the Broadmoor Shopping 
Center, and the bridge at the 
south end of Natchitoches. 

Thirty-eight miles of wiring 
have gone into the project, 
which is now valued at more 
than $100,000. 

This beautiful spectacle of 
light attracts around five times 
of the city's population. People 
come from as far away as St. 
Louis as well as the local seven 
state area. 

The fireworks display, which 
plays a major part in the 
Festival was started in 1936. 
Allen C. Cox and Sam West 
originated it. The first display 
was valued at $300. This years 
program will total ap- 
proximately $2600. It has been 
estimated that between 75 and 
80 thousand people attend the 
Christmas Festival annually. 

The fireworks are fired in 
duplicate, by professionals, 
from both sides of the bridges 
on the east bank of the River, 
across from Front Street. 

The gala holiday parade will 
begin at 2 p.m. It will contain 
some 90 bands and marching 
units plus many floats. The 
parade will assemble at Nor- 
thwestern. From there it will 

come down Second Street to 
Lafayette, and cross over to 
Front Street. Then it will go 
down to the old bridge, and 
finally break up in the Dixie 
Plaza Shopping Center. 

The parade will begin with the 
Northwestern ROTC color 
guard, and end with a float 
entitled "Happy New Year." 

The Festival theme this year 
is "Christmas Legends", and 
will be carried out, throughout 
the events. 

In conjunction with the 
Festival " A Group Called 
Smith," and comedian George 
McKelvey will perform in NSU 
Prather Coliseum, Saturday, 
December 5 at 8 p.m. It will 
immediately follow the 
Christmas lighting. 

"Showcase '70," an NSU 
Student Union Committee, will 
present the group, as the third 
entertainment program of the 

The group flavors their hard 
rock music with a faint touch of

For What It's Worth 

At the last football game I 
was sitting in the stands wat- 
ching the band marching 
through the half-time 
ceremonies and admittedly I 
was quite impressed with the 
grandeur and beauty. Here is a 
band that is truly worthy of a 
university, I mused. After the 
ceremony was over I sat in my 
seat worrying about the 
weather and if I had by mistake 
maligned a wonderful band. 
Could it be true that I had 
shattered the band's image and 
hurt recruitment? Oh, the pain. 
The mystery did not last long 
though for I soon received my 
answer from the tuba section of 
this genteel group. "Hey," 
yelled someone from behind 
me, "there's that faggot, let's 
kill him." Soon others chimed 
in. Well, now in truth I thought 
they were having a band 
meeting, but soon however, I 
turned around to see a boy with 
an obvious gland problem 
staring directly at me. Golly, I 
thought-from the direction his 
drool was flying-he must be 
yelling at me. At this, being 
small, I decided to leave, 
deserting those sitting around 
me to admire the band's use of 
words in protesting a column- 1 
am sure the sight of people in 
NSC band uniforms exhibiting 
what they had learned as music 
majors was enough to impress 
any prospective student or 
alumni. Congratulations band.

At the SGA the other night the 
Potpourri was given two more 
scholarships to pay their 
workers who have not been 
receiveing enough money. This 
was after one of their own 
members said there was a 
mismanagement in the 
distribution of present funds. 
This was never adequately 
explained. Rumor also has it 
that the color of the cover will 
be yellow this year - can't wait

Dear Editor: 

With your indulgence, I would 
like to address this letter to the 
author(s) of the filler article, 

"Mr. Raker," in two past 
issues of the Current Sauce, you 
have seen fit to criticize the 
NSU band. The two "con- 
troversial" charges you 
brought against the band were : 
(1) our "stomping all over the 
football field all week" and (2) 
our "lack of spirit." The first 
charge I dismissed as a lack of 
knowledge on your part. 
However, to set the record 
straight, the band "stomps all 
over the field" for less than 45 
minutes one day a week. 

The second charge, however, 
cannot be dismissed so lightly. 
It cannot be attributed to a lack 
of knowledge on your part, for I 
am certain you yourself have 
attended at least one NSU 

Since I am sure you have 
attended a game, I can see no 
reason whatsoever for your 
attack on the band. If you have 
noticed, the band has attended 
all home games, the Northeast 
game and the State Fair game. 
The band has also performed 
for half time at all these games. 
And the hours of marching and 
practice that go into one of these 
performances is enough to tax 
anyone's patience. But the band 
does it! 

Notice also that the student 
turnout for these games leaves 
much to be desired. In your 
Nov. 20 article, you mentioned 
that the McNeese band, at one 
of their games performed a 15- 
minute after-game concert, 
even though their team lost. All 
this is well and good, but our 
band would look pretty silly 
playing an after-game concert 
to an empty stadium, don't you 

In reference to the referees 
telling the band to "cool it," I 
think I can easily explain that. 
Due to the proximity (proximity 

means nearness, "Mr. Raker") 
of the band to the field, any 
playing by the band would 
prevent the team from hearing 
the quarterback's signals. As a 
result, Coach Gossett has asked 
Mr. Smith to refrain from any 
music at all while the ball is 
between the 30 yard lines. 

If you would really like to do 
some good for the University, 
you could start with the 
cheerleaders. Perhaps you 
could point out to them that 
their function at ballgames is to 
lead the few students who show 
up in cheers and not to 
demonstrate the latest gym- 
nastic and acrobatic skills they 
have acquired. Those students 
who attend ballgames are there 
to watch the game, not the 

In short, "Mr. Raker," look 
before you leap. Surely, there is 
a lack of spirit at NSU, but 
before you place the blame be 
sure you research all 
possibilities and have 
something with which to back 
your statement. 

Sincerely yours, 
Ronnie Bales 
To Whom It May Concern: 

I'd like to call your attention 
to the recent "Muckraker" 
printed in the November 21 
issue of the Current Sauce. I'd 
like to make a few comments on 
the remark made concerning 
"lack of spirit displayed by the 
NSU Band." 

It would be well worth your 
while to look into a few things 
before you print information. 
You stated that the spirit was 
down even before the referees 
asked the musicians "cool it." 
Had you done a little research 
you would have found that 
Coach Gossett asked personally 
that the band not play when the 
teams were between the 30 yard 
lines because the band is so 
close to the field it is hard to 
hear the quarterback call 
signals when the band is 
At the time the referees asked 

As the area newspapers daily 
display " so many shopping 
days until Christmas," here at 
Northwestern the festive season 
becomes evident. If you look 
around you, you notice the artist 
in the Student Union busily 
completing the Christmas 
painting. This hustle and bustle 
is in conjunction with the 3rd 
annual Union Board Window 
Painting Contest. From all 
indications, the paintings and 
murals will be more abundant 
and artistic this year. This 
particular project draws 
tourists to the Natchitoches 
Christmas festival to our 
campus to view the colorful 
spectacle. First, second, and 
third place trophies will be 
awarded to the top windows at 
the Showcase '70 Concert 
Saturday night. 

On Thursday night, 
December 3, the Union Board 
sponsored its annual lights show 
and caroling. This event of- 
ficially began the Christmas 
season on campus. Friday 
night, December 4 marks the 
4th annual Winter Ball. The 
ball, which is the only campus 
wide formal of the year, is 

the band to "cool it," the band 
had simply risked playing 
because they were tired of 
sitting there freezing to death 
while waiting for the teams to 
move on down the field. 

As for playing a concert after 
the game, I feel it would be a 
waste of time. The support of 
the band is bad in this school 
and I feel sure that the size of 
the crowd that would remain 
after a game in cold weather 
would be minute. 

I ask you once more to check 
into things before you print 
them. This is the second cut on 
the band that you have printed 
without knowing all the facts. 
(The first was in reference to 
the band "stomping on the 
football field five days a 
week"). A little more research 
will help your column im- 
mensely .

Over a month before the Thanksgivin, 
holidays, the Maintenance Department said thi 
during the holidays they were going to take up; 
feet of the street in front of the Student Unit 
where all the holes were and concrete it. T\ 

reason for this action, the man said, was thj 
asphalt would not stay because of the water thi 
was then being pumped into the street from tk 
broken sewer line. He said that concrete unde 
these conditions would stay so during tli 
holidays, since traffic was too heavy while scho 
was going on they were going to repair the stree 

Surprise, surprise, the street looks the same a 
it did before we left for the holidays. I was unde 
the impression that concrete was a differet 
color from asphalt and the street is the sanv 
color and besides the holes are still there. So, 
stands to reason, if the street was repaired, tb 
Maintenance crew deserves a reward for th 
great camouflage job they did because neither 
nor anyone else can tell that the street wal 


The women's liberation movement on the NSl 
campus seems to have come to a standstill. ] 
has been two weeks since the meeting of wome 
students in the Arts and Sciences Auditorium 
Yet nothing has happened. 

The girls who attended the meeting that nigh 
were there to get something done. Many hat 
worked long hours before the meeting researl; 
ching. Were their efforts in vain? 

Now that the girls have done their part, it is 
time for the administration to act. Lynn Killen 
AWS president, said Wednesday that she would 
probably be meeting with the administration 
before the Christmas holidays to discuss the 
recommendations. Meanwhile, the prisoners 
be anxiously awaiting the verdict. What will 
jury decide? 

The NSU Campus Is Beautiful , Isn't It 

Photos and story by Mack <^reen 

LITTER — Reading material is available in quantity to all NSU students Simply 
begin a stroll across the campus. You will not go far before finding an old 
newspaper, magazine, or poster lying on the campus grounds. This abundance of 
literary material is supplemented by candy wrappers, paper cups boxes beer 
cans. etc. The aspect of NSU having an unclean campus stands awkwardly 
beside the fact that hundreds of NSU students participated in a campus-wide 
cleanup almost three weeks ago. The cleanup which was designed to make the 

students take more pride in the treatment of their campus has apparently beco 
nothing more than a forgotten token. Dr. Ray Baumgardner, faculty sponsor 
the campus cleanup, said that the campus was improved for a while and I 
allowed the campus yardmen to catch up, but the cleanup did little to affect ' 
litter situation on campus. Dr. Baumgardner who is chairman of the UniverS' 
Campus Beautification Committee has asked that any suggestions for " 
provement of the campus grounds be sent to him .

The brothers of Pi Kappa Phi 
were busy last week before 
leaving for Thanksgiving, 
turkey dinner and various other 
extracurricular activities. 

Brother Junior Nobles set up 
a hayride for the brothers and 
their dates in a definitely un- 
dersized truck which resulted in 
good times for everyone. On 
Monday night the brotherhood 
adjourned so that they could 
attend a pledge-active bonfire. 
Unlike Pi Kappa ski parties, no 
one was thrown in. 

The intramural cross country 
meet was a wide variety of

with Ronnie Fontenat capturing 
first place. 

Work is progressing slowly 
but surely on the chapter house 
which was damaged by a fire 
last October. Some remodeling 
has been done so to allow the 
brothers a larger meeting 
room. With no more problems, 
work should be completed this

Dr. Bennie Barron, dean of 
the new College of Basic Studies

Election to D hi Kappa Phi is 
one of the highest academic 
honors which can be bestowed 
upon students at Northwestern. 

Seniors, graduate students 
and second-semester juniors in 
any field of study are eligible 
for membership in Phi Kappa 
Phi, which signifies the high 
scholastic attainment and good 
character of the college 
students selected.

Misty-eyed nostalgia and wry 
humor, Hollywood tinsel, 
cosmopolitan glamour, 
authenic Americana and high 
camp form an aromatic, heady 
blend under a book cover which 
imitates the old Lucky Strike

reformed smokers and would- 
be non-smokers should par-

"My generation was the last 
one to be directly influenced by 
the American past," muses 
Author Harris Lewine, fortyish. 
"Cigarettes were an integral 
part of our social life. It was a 
naive time when a cigarette was 
an indispensable, social adorn- 
ment—although some people 
were coughing in the '20s. It 
dressed up Marlene Dietrich 
and Greta Gar bo. It was also 
part of Bogey's toughness and 
no movie gangster would be 
caught dead without a dangling 

An inveterate, heavy smoker, 
Lewine does not touch the stuff 
any more-most of the time, that 
is. He has broken the habit. Not, 
however, without a measure of 

heartbreak. Giving it all up - 
THAT-was no mean un- 
dertaking. He records his 
feelings and afterthoughts in an 
outrageous parody of an in- 
timate diary which appears in 
strip form at the top of the more 
conventionally set pages. 

Some of the chapter headings 
provide a clue to the progress of 
the appealing, lighthearted but 
thoroughly documented text: 
"Smoking on the Continent", 
"Smoking Behind the Gazebo", 
"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", 
"Smoking Permitted in the 
Balcony", "Smoke, Smoke, 
Smoke that Cigarette!" 



The Department of Sociology 
and Social Work at Nor- 
thwestern State University has 
been notified by the Council of 
Social Work Education that it 
has been accepted for con- 
stituent membership. 

Dr. Millard Bienvenu, head of 
the NSU department, said the 
department will be placed on 
the roster of constituent 
members of the Council on 
Social Work Education and 
listed in the next membership 
directory of undergraduate 
departments. Also, the 
university is now eligible to 
name a delegate to the council's 
House of Delegates. 

Bienvenu said the Council on 
Social Work Education is the 
accrediting body for un- 
dergraduate curriculums in 
social work in the United States. 
Northwestern is only the second 
institution of higher learning in 
Louisiana to qualify for 

Northwestern 's Department 
of Sociology and Social Work 
underwent vast changes and 
made several academic ad- 
vancements in order to qualify, 
said Bienvenu. One im- 
provement was the establish- 
ment of a field experience 
program for seniors. 

"Membership in the Council 
on Social Work Education will 
play a paramount role in at- 
tracting students to Nor- 
thwestern," Binevenu stated. 
He said it would make the 
university more attractive to 
students planning careers in 
social work. 

He also pointed out that 
Northwestern 's prestige will be 
enhanced in other areas, 
resulting in better opportunities 
for stipends and other funds 
available for undergraduate 
education in social work. 

Bienvenu has a master's 
degree in social work from LSU. 
Before entering the field of 
education, he had extensive 
experience in child welfare, 
juvenile probation and parole, 
vocational rehabilitation, 
special education and 
psychiatric social work.

expense-paid trips to Memphis 
for two days of contest activities 
December 29-30, with the 
winner making her first official 
appearance at the Cotton Bowl

Holy Cross Church will host a 
semi-annual Marriage 
Preparation Conference (Pre- 
Cana) next weekend, December

Catholics and non-Catholics, 
and offers an intensive look into 
the possibilities and problems 
which face the young married 
couple. Directors of the con- 
ference are Mr. and Mrs. 
Wilfred Broussard. 

Various aspects of marriage 
will be presented by 
professionals in the field, and 
married couples will discuss the 
practical, everyday side of 
married life. Areas of interest 
to be discussed, and speakers, 
are as follows: Law and 
Marriage, Kenneth McCoy; 
Psychology of Man and Woman, 
Dean Dudley Fulton; Com- 
munications and Adjustment, 
Dr. Millard Bienvenu; Medical 
and Physiological, Dr. Joe

p.m. On Sunday, sessions begin 
at 1:30 p.m. and the conference 
ends at 5:30 p.m. Fee for the 
conference will be $4.00 per 
couple. It is urged that both 

parties who are planning 
marriage attend the whole 
conference together, since both 
will then have more insight into 
what they plan. 

Another conference is 
planned for the spring, in late 
April, so those planning to 
marry before the spring should 
register at Holy Cross as soon 
as possible either in person or 
by telephone (352-2615)

and horticulture. An in- 
tercollegiate rodeo team is 
chosen from the membership 
and participates in NIRA 
rodeo's in Louisiana and 
surrounding states. The club is 
active in interannual sports and 
other competition with campus 
student organizations. 

The social highlights of the 
club include fall and spring 
barbeque and dance and a 
spring banquet. A new addition 

to the Agricultural Sciences 
building is a coffee room and 
lounge which provide a place 
for relaxation and conversation 
between and after classes. 

On the professional side the 
club has various projects, in- 
cluding the concessions at 
N.S.U. football games, work 
days for campus and depart-

With a virtually untried, 
freshman laden team, the 
Northwestern Black Knights 

won a trophy and overall fourth 
place honors at the West Texas 
University Invitational Drill 

The Demon drill team, 
considered the last unit in the 
nation to throw rifles 

throughout their routine, 
performed for the final time, 
the routine which has produced 
four national marching titles, 

guest appearances on local, 
television as well as the Ed 
Sullivan Show and won 
numerous drill meets. 

Traveling over 800 miles in a 
single day and not sleeping for 
24 hours gave the freshman, as 

drill team adviser Major Bill 
Cone put it, invaluable ex- 
perience and a true meaning of 
what it takes to win. The former 

Black Knight said, "Nor- 
thwestern is potentially a 
greater drill team than ever 
before, with new talent and a 
new look the future is bright." 

The "new look" is an intricate 
routine involving machine-like 
movements and fewer throws at 
a fast cadence. 

Due to graduation and 
academic failures the Knights 
started the fall semester with 

only ten of the twenty men* 
that placed second in the] 
year's Cherry Blo^

Female orb spiders that take

amphetamines or mescaline, 
says physician-pharmacist Dr. 
Peter Witt in the November 

web is small but regular, while 
the amphetamine and 
mescaline webs are small and 
irregular. Psilocybin produces 
a small, regular web, too. The 
most bizarre webs, small and

spiders on barbituates.

be marijuana. 

"There will be a continued 
surveillance of the drug 
problem on campus," Chief Lee 
announced. Most of the in- 
formation obtained concerning 
drugs on campus comes from 
concerned students, according 
to Chief Lee. There have also 
been reports of marijuana 
smoking in the girl's dor- 
mitories, Chief Lee said, but he

Concerning the drug problem 
on campus Chief Lee com- 
mented that in the past much of 
what was believed to have been 
marijuana that has been seized 
by campus officials has turned 
out to be false products such as 
bay leaves and ground alfalfa. 
"From this information it

being fooled into buying and

Officials Stir Audience 

At Showcase '70 Concert 

alph Nader 
To Appear 

December 14 

By Charles Herring 

The lights dimmed, and with 
electric hair and freaky clothes 
"A Group Called Smith" began 
the throbbing sounds of Nor- 
thwestern 's first hard rock 

Unfortunately, "Smith," a 
mediocre group at best, failed 
to vary their beat. They fell into 
that monotonous rut that was so 
characteristic of the early 
immature stages of hard rock. 

Most of their songs, with a few 
exceptions, such as "Baby It's 
You," sounded like carbon 
copies of each other. 

This was due to a dull 
drummer, a boring guitarist, 
who played without feeling or 
variation, a mediocre organist, 
and a stale choice of songs. 
"Smith" is a late comer to the 
underground circuit. They lag 
far behind the more mature 

hard rock or underground 
groups, such as "King 
Crimson" or "The Who." 

Vocalist Barbra Robinson 
was the only outstanding 
member of the group. She had a 
tough, harsh, Janis Joplin-type 

She put so much feeling into 
"Baby It's You" that one could 
actually feel the song. 

Even the haunting lines "take 
me back to my beginning, to the 
place where I should be," 
sounded even more haunting 
when she sang them. 

If the group failed to stir the 
audience, the officials who 
warned the students not to 
dance did. 

Full of energy, or perhaps a 
coke or two, and bored by the 
music, some students were not 
about to be told what not to do, 
especially when they had not 
yet done anything.

Debators Defeat 
Oklahoma Team 

By Melon! O'Banion 

Northwestern State 
University's debate team was 
the host of a debate with 
University of Oklahoma's 
debate team on Dec. 7-8, 1970. 

NSU's Donnie Couvillion, a 
junior from Alexandria, and 
Sally Graham, a freshman from 
Alexandria were on the 
negative side opposed to 
University of Oklahoma's Ken 
Margovlis and Rick Slemacher. 

Topic of the debate was 
resolved: The Women's 
Liberation Movement is Good 
for You. 

The debate was held in the 
Fine Arts' Little Theater. One 
hundred Speech 101 students 
and campus instructors at- 
tended the debate. 

Each person in the audience 
was given a change of opinion 

Northwestern won 130 to 
Oklahoma's 47 

The debate lasted one hour. 
Each debator spoke twice, first 
ten minutes then five minutes 
on the topic. 

Both teams plan a reciprocal 
debate at the University of 
Oklahoma's invitational debate 
tournament. The topic will be 
Pollution and Population. 

Oklahoma's debate team was 
under the supervision of Dr. 
Paul Barefield. NSU's debate 
team is under the direction of 
Mr. Ray Schexnider. 

Donnie Couvillion, Sally 
Graham, Jim Beal, and Claire 
Moncroieve will attend the 
debate tournament in 
Oklahoma in February, 1971. 

NSU will hold an off topic 
debate tournament with the 
general topic "Militarism in 
American Society" March 4-7, 

A group of about 100 students 
began dancing around the 
bandstand. They sat down only 
after officials threatened to stop 
the concert. 

' 'We were not forced to cut the 
concert short," a member of the 
group said in an interview after 
the concert. "This was a very 
receptive crowd," he added. 

"I couldn't compare the 
concert tonight with other 
concerts because each one is a 
different trip," another 
member said. 

The band contained no 
members of the original group 
which gained fame by making 
"Baby It's You" a national hit. 

"Members left and members 
joined until we finally had a new 
group," one member explained. 

Despite their lack of talent, 
"A Group Called Smith" did 
give some badly needed balance 
to a so far bubble gum and 
"Lettermen" oriented 
"Showcase 70." 

Comedian George McKelvey 
preceededthe "Smith." Despite 
hecklers, he kept his cool and 
was funny at times. McKelvey 
will have his own syndicated 
r.V. talk show beginning next 

"The hecklers were very loud 
and very irritating," McKelvey 
said after the show. "They were 
one reason the show didn't get 
off the ground." 

"Too bad the people couldn't 
dance," said McKelvey. "Rock 
concerts should be open for 

Because of possible damage 
to the gym floor, students are 
not allowed to dance at con- 
certs, a campus official ex- 

"Your administration seems 
to be uptight," the comedian 
said. "But we are used to 
conservative administrations," 
he added. "The larger, more 
liberal campuses don't have 
rock concerts anymore, they 
are too busy having riots." 

Mc Knight Captures 

'Bracelet' Contest 

Sophomore Kay McKnight 
was crowned 1971 Lady of the 
Bracelet in front of a capacity 
crowd in the annual Lady of the 
Bracelet Pageant Wednesday in 
the Fine Arts Auditorium. 
Moments after receiving her 
title, the brown-eyed beauty 
commented as to her feelings at 
this time: "I am shocked. I do 
not feel like I am standing up 
here; it must be a dream." 

Graciously giving up her 
crown was 1970 Lady of the 
Bracelet Bonnie Martin. In her 
farewell address, she used the 
theme of the pageant, "You've 
Come a Long Way Lady" to 
express her feelings about her 
reign. She stated: "I have truly 
come a long way. During this 
year I have met so many 
wonderful people and have 
made lasting friendships. I now 
wish to share my once in a 
lifetime experience." 

First runner-up to the Lady of 
the Bracelet was Sophomore 
Pat Finley, Alexandria. She will 
represent NSU in the Holiday in 
Dixie Pageant, and Kay 
McKnight will compete in the 
Miss Louisiana contest. 

Susan Boswell, Natchitoches; 
Ginger McGee, Bossier City; 
and Brenda Collins, Pineville 
were the remaining members of 
the top five contestants where 
they placed as second, third, 
and fourth runners-up 

Three other trophies were 
also awarded. Voted on by the 
girls themselves, Kay 
McKnight received the "Miss 
Congeniality" award. She is the 
girl that her fellow contestants 
thought was the most congenial 
during the competition. 

Senior Billie Jones received 
the talent trophy. In talent 
competition, she sang a song 
which she had written and also 
accompanied it with a banjo. 

Senior Gayle Harvey gained top 
honors in swimsuit competition. 

The visiting queens, Carol 
Almand, Cynthia Riser, Debbie 
Wester, and Mary Stewart then 
performed a rendition to "A 
Time for Living." The last of 
the modern dance numbers was 
presented by the Made- 
moiselles. Cynthia Riser 
accompanied their modern 
dance routine to the tune of 
"Thoroughly Modern Millie." 

Other special entertainment 
was given by Carol Almand, 
Miss Louisiana, who sang a 
medley of songs from the 
Broadway musical 

The highlight of the evenings 
special entertainment was 
presented by Roxie Carriere, 
one of the top 20 finalists. She 
provided a live interpretation in 
song of Harper Valley's PTA. 

Master of Ceremonies for the 
pageant was Bob Griffin, KSLA 
- Television in Shreveport. He 
gave the audience a variety of 
"Bob and His Buddies" jokes to 
make the contest "smooth." 

In the personality interview, 
when the new Lady of the 
Bracelet, Kay McKnight, was 
asked what she would do in her 
reign if she were elected Miss 
Louisiana, she replied: "I 
would meet as many people as I 
possibly could, and I would try 
to make the state as proud of me 
as I am of it." In talent com- 
petition, she gave a dramatic 
reading from "Gone With the 

Special entertainment for the 
evening was provided by a 
variety of groups. The Joan 
Kathey Dancers of Leesville 
filled the first break with a 
modern dance number called 
"Like Wow." 

From a field of 151 
nominations, 43 contestants 
participated in the first round of 

preliminaries which was held 
November 21. The top 20 girls 
were then picked and competed 
in the second round of 
preliminaries on the afternoon 
of December 9. Other members 
of the top ten which were chosen 
at this time were Debbie Jones, 
Alexandria; Gayle Harvey, 
Leesville; Ellen Sullivan, 
Cotton Valley; Debbie 
Couvillion, Kaplan; and Billie 
Jones, DeRidder. 

The final competition was 
held at the pageant on the 
evening of December 9. The 
entire competition of the Lady 
of the Bracelet was presented 
by the Student Union Governing 
Board. The pageant was under 
the direction of Garland Riddle, 
executive director, and Danny 
Seymour, assistant director. 

During the course of the 
pageant, the top ten beauties 
were judged on swimsuit, 
talent, evening gown, and 
personality competition. The 
proceedings were run by Miss 
America rules. 

Judges for the affair were; 
Jim Dimos, director of Miss 
Louisiana Pageant, Monroe; 
Curtis Rape, choreographer of 
Miss Louisiana Pageant, 
Monroe; Judy Fletcher Leary, 
1960 Miss Louisiana, Alexan- 
dria; Marilyn Stevens, director 
of Stevens Academy of Dance, 
Leesville; and Vivian Rogers, 
director of Miss Holiday in 
Dixie, Shreveport.

Delta Zeta 
Places First 
In Contest 

Delta Zeta Sorority took first 
place honors in the annual 
Christmas Painting Contest 
which was sponsored by the 
Student Union. 

Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority 
and Sigma Kappa Sorority, both 
having themes concerning 
peace and war, won second and 
third places respectively. 
Trophies were presented at the 
intermission of the "Smith" 
concert on December 5. Debbie 
Davis, chairman of the Fine 
Arts Committee of the Student 
Union, gave these awards. 

The field of twelve entries 
were judged on originality, use 
of color, neatness, and appeal. 
The emphasis of the judging 
was placed on originality. Five 
judges for the event were 
selected from townspeople and 
faculty members. 

A variety of themes were used 
by the participants, but overall, 
the concern for world problems 
was expressed in each window. 
The winning window of Delta 
Zeta used "The Gift of Love is 
Unending" as its theme. 

' Ifcii lira ' - 

SERENITY — Pleas for peace and tranquility were common themes in this 
year s Student Union window paintings. They also aid in creating the welcomed 
atmosphere of serenity on a night such as this.

America Drowning 
In Her Own Greed 

As I See It 

By John S. Knight 
Detroit Free Press 
Nov. 29, 1970 

Thanksgiving Day has come 
and gone with traditional ob- 
servance of its religious and 
feastful customs. 

Yet the day appointed to 
express thanks for divine 
goodness has lost much of its 
meaning in recent years, as a 
nation engulfed in selfishness 
and greed is draining its 
national character. 

There is no thought of 
sacrifice and but little con- 
sideration given to what is right 
or wrong - only to personal 
gains and self-aggrandizement. 

This is an age when men seek 
to destroy one another and by 
means as devious as any ever 
devised by the Oriental mind. 

Every stabilizing force is 
under attack, whether it be the 
schools, the churches, or even 
the fabric of government itself. 

This is an age of cynicism, in 
which morality and fair dealing 
are being overwhelmed by 
economic forces which, in their 
quest for power, successfully 
defy and turn back the weaker 
elements of our society. 

Partisan considerations 
override calm judgments; 
outrageous changes are brought 
against men in public life with 
reputations for probity; ob- 
servance of the law is not only 
demeaned, but its upholders are 
scorned in the most derogatory 

The scholarly debates of 
another day have become mere 
exercises in abuse and in- 
vective, as witness the recent 
bitter exchange between former 
Attorney General Ramsay 
Clark and FBI Director J. 
Edgar Hoover. 

Statesmanship is all but a lost 
art, as pandering politicians 

move and maneuver for ap- 
proval of pressure groups and 
special interests. 

The Nixon administration is 
roundly criticized for not 
bringing peace to the Mideast. 
Yet the critics choose to ignore 
the fact that it was the quiet 
diplomacy of Secretary of State 
William P. Rogers which led to 
a cease-fire in that area and the 
basis for discussions between 
Isreal and the Arab world. 

There are those who would 
write a new Constitution for the 
United States, providing even 
more power for the central 
government than it possesses 

Yet the Constitution, 
universally recognized as the 
greatest document for the 
government of free men, has 
been amended 25 times, in- 
cluding the Bill of Rights, to 
provide for changing times and 

The AFL— CIO, reflecting the 
cynicism of President George 
Meany, charges that the Nixon 
administration's economic 
game plan "is an abysmal 

While I would concede that 
the President has not dealt with 
our economic ills in forthright 
fashion, it is appropriate to ask 
Mr. Meany why he feels Big 
Labor is without blame. 

The inflationary effect of the 
wage-cost push is undeniable, 
as witness the recent UAW 
settlement with General Motors 

During the past several 
weeks, students have made me 
aware of incidents in which 
Northwestern students have 
been severely maligned by our 
local law enforcement officers. 
Oddly enough, that 
harrassment has come from 
personnel other than our own 
campus security force or the 
Natchitoches Police. 

Instead, some students have 
been given a hard time by other 
watchdogs of justice, the Parish 
Sheriff's deputies, and the Civil 
Defense officers (members of 
NYPD, or the Natchitoches 
Yokel Police Department). Who 
these civil officers are supposed 
to defend somehow escapes me, 
particularly after hearing of 
some of their recent actions. 

For instance, a student at one 
of the local high school football 
games (held in Demon 
Stadium) was reportedly 
standing with one foot on the 
sidewalk and the other on the 
grass next to it, outside the 
fence. A rule unilaterally 
handed down by some august 
group of city officials dictated 
that people - including NSU 
students - were not to stand on 
the grass within 30 or so feet of 
the fence. 

Although the student could 
not be arrested for that par- 
ticular charge, the CD officer 
grabbed a chance to nab him 
"for disobeying an officer." 
There are at least two fallacies 
in that charge: first, it seems 
that (according to the student) 
he was never told to remove his 

and an immediate average foot from the grass; and second, 
boost of $24 in passenger car ' 

Labor's excessive demands, 
with no corresponding rise in 
productivity, spell failure for 

the title "officer" is a little 
questionable, especially in this 

At any rate, when the student 
learned of the charge, he 

thousands of smaller firms reportedly said, "Damn, I only 
which cannot meet the com- had one foot on the grass!" Any 
petition of the giants of industry rookie cop, professional or part 
and maintain profitability. time, knows that the first word 

By David Precht 

is unequivocably a profanity 
(nasty word), and thereby 
warrants arrest for using "vile 
and profane language to an 
officer. This the officer did, and 
the student's bond was set for 
$40 for the two charges. 

In other incidents NSU 
students have been hauled down 
to the city jail, without having 
been informed of their rights, 
without being allowed a phone 
call before incarceration, and 
being taken in on questionable, 
if not ridiculous, charges. 

Situations such as these in- 
dicate a very definite need for 
legal assistance for out 
students. This assistance would 
come in the form of counseling 
for students on matters of due 
process and other rights af- 
forded those suspected of 
committing violations of laws. 

The first student mentioned 
should probably not have had to 
forfeit his bond. And in the 
latter instances, their cases 
have not come up in court, and 
anything further said here 
about them may tend to jeor- 
padize any proceedings. 

The point being made here is 
that students need and desire 
professional legal assistance. 
This proposal was discussed at 
the Student Body Presidents' 
Conference held here Monday, 
and a resolution to that effect 
was presented to the Deans of 
Louisiana schools at a joint 
meeting, requesting help in this 

The topic has also been 
hashed around throughout the 
state in student government 
meetings and conferences, and 
will probably be dealt with 
shortly. But we, as the Student 
Government Association, must 
seek to provide some sort of aid 
for our students in the mean- 
time. And we are. 

For Smith Concert 

Explanations Offered 

By David Navarre 

What we had Saturday, Dec. 5 
at the Smith concert was truly a 
failure to communicate. There 
were many happenings and no 
explanations what so ever were 
offered to the audience. Hence, 
the response of the audience 
late in the concert was one 
based on purely what "seemed" 
to be happening. This I feel was 
the reason it ended the way it 
did. It was no more one in- 
dividual's fault than the other. 
Instead of explanation and 
resolution there was reaction 
and revolt. The entire incident 
centered around misin- 
terpretation and reaction. Not 
to rules, but rather to the 
reasons behind them, which I 
found later to be quite valid if 
they had only been explained. 

1. The concert was late 
because of the rain and the 
traffic downtown. A little extra 
time was allotted to those who 
may have been held back but 
wanted to see and had as much 
right to the concert in its en- 

2. There were two complaints 
from the audience about 
heckling and it was narrowed 
down to section T. Mr. Wilson 
made no specific charges 
against certain people, but 
addressed the entire section 
with a threat of expulsion from 
the concert if it didn't cease. 
Being in that section myself I 
didn't hear any extraneous 
noise. We did catch and respond 
to a number of lines eluding the 
general audience which we 
thought were quite funny. 

3. After about one half of the 
concert, a good one third of the 
audience had decided it wasn't 
their scene. Those remaining 
constituted a rather sincere 
audience there for the music of 
rare form for NSU. 

4. Mr. Wilson, along with an 
aide, was more or less in charge 

SfLetterTtoThe Editor! 

Dear editor, 

The administration 
specifically points out 
regulations prohibiting 
firearms on campus. That 
makes it illegal, right? Web- 
ster's New World Dictionary 
defines illegal as: "prohibited 
by law; against the law." 

But it is not unusual (and 
quiet common, in fact) to see 
men students lugging a rifle or 
shotgun across their shoulder - 
on campus! No uniform is a 
valid excuse for possessing 
firearms. They kill, whether 
one wears a uniform or a bikini. 

I have often seen our hard- 
working, law abiding Campus 
Security in the presence of 
students possessing firearms, 
and no attempt was made to 

enforce the law. Our policemen, 
who are here to protect all of us, 
will hunt, follow, track down, 
and investigate for weeks and 
months in hopes to apprehend 
someone possessing that "killer 
weed" - marijuana, so that 
they will "save his life from 
corruption, and save his mind 
from deterioration." 

But for some reason, they 
refuse to enforce the law 
prohibiting firearms, which are 
more deadly and dangerous 
than any given amount of 

If we must abide by the laws, 
we should and must be con- 
sistent - abide by all of them. 
The laws are for everyone, even 
the people we dislike. 

Very sincerely, 

(Copied from the Detroit Free Press, John S. Knight's Notebook, Nov. 29, 1970.)

One last comment on the 
band: a relatively simple and 
small amount of investigation 
would have uncovered the fact 
that I, at no time, have ever 
accused the NSU band of 
"stomping all over the football 
field all week." 

A little research of the nature 
advocated by some of my critics 
in the "Letters to the Editor" 
column in last week's paper 
would have shown that the 
above allegation was made on 

copy and a question and answer 
period followed. Rollins moved 
to accept the 1970 Fall semester 
S.U. Budget as presented. 
Seconded by Broussard. Motion 

Donnie Couvillion presented a 
resolution made by USL per- 
taining to the culmination of 
mandatory commencement 
attendance for graduates. 
O'Quin moved to refer LISL's 
resolution to the Academic and 
Professional Standards Com- 
mittee. Seconded by Thrash. 
Motion carried. 

The following Standing 
Committee reports were given : 
AMS, AWS - Killen reported 
that the Women's Regulations 
issue will be given to the 
Student Welfare Committee for 
research and discussion. Also, a 
Student Services Committee 
report was given. 

Rollins moved that the

Seconded by Jeanne Hebert. 
Motion carried. Meeting was

of the show. This genUeman too 
is more or less responsible for 
the coffee-house on campus. He 
is a victim of circumstance in 
many instances and deserves 
both our respect and support. 

5. Two attempts were made 
by some to sit down in front of 
the band stand. Asked to move 
they obeyed. No reason was 
given until later, and it is quite 
valid-fire regulations state that 
there must be clear accessable 
fire lanes in case of emergency. 

6. No dancing. The reason 
behind this is good also-$4000. 
That is what it cost last time to 
refinish the floor after a dance 
there. I'd rather apply that to a 
band than a floor any day. 
Together with this there aren't 
enough men available for crowd 
control and there is always a 
possibility of needing it. They 
did last time. The possibility of 
taking the floor up is feasible 
after basketball season. The 
band had been told of not 
mentioning dancing-still they 
did- the reaction was to 
authority and not to reason. 
However, the first couple to 
dance was not a "long-haired" 
dissident, sad to say. That 
honor belongs to a fraternity 
gentleman and his date. I don't 
even recall seeing any "long 
hairs" on the floor dancing. 

7. As for big names-these 
involve big prices. We don't 
have that kind of money nor do 
we all share the same tastes. 
Mr. Wilson has to sweat out the 
possibility of a cancellation. 
That too can happen. Look at 
Grand Funk in Shreveport. I 
was, as many, a victim of that 
and once was enough. B.J. 
Thomas cancelled for this, he 
was the original performer until 
unforseen circumstances arose. 

8. Mr. Wilson is available in 
his office if you have any 
questions. He told me he would 
level with us. Only by talking to 
him will we see. 

9. The concert didn't have to 
end as early as it did, according 
to Mr. Wilson and his aide, 
Ricky Howard. As I mentioned 
earlier, the fault lies in many 
laps. Mr. Howard "talked" to 
me Monday morning and with 
little tact told me, "Tell all Your 
friends that the next time 
something like that happens..." 
(you can take it from there). I 
made certain that there was a 
witness for the entire con- 
versation. It was very in- 

Frankly, I seriously doubt 
there will be next time. I get the 
feeling that the Iron Hand of 
some controlling force is going 
to lean on many in the coming 
weeks with fantastic repressive 
results. Repression is not the 
answer, cooperation is. I can 
say that the future will find 
more sincere, open-minded, and 
active individuals representing 
the interests of the majority of 
the student body in Showcase 
'70. If action now is repressive, 
physically or administratively, 
then the response will be far 
from cooperative. 

I beseech the student body as 
well as the aciministration to 
please cooperate with one 
another. Unify toward a 
common good and by all means 
keep communications open, 
viable, and effective.

For What It's Worth 

By Bessie 

The SGA must be congratulated for approvin, 
another scholarship for the Current Sauce ail 
two more scholarships for the Potpourri. Th, 
scholarships are needed and are ereatlv a* 
predated. J p 

With a unanimous recommendation from tfo 
Publications Committee, it still took the SGA tyj 
meetings to approve the scholarships. Th« 
finally came through Monday, Nov. 30, aftej 
tabling the motion at a previous meeting, muefl 
discussion, bogging down in the technicalities 
correct parlimentary procedure, trying to refu 
the motion to various committees for furthej 
study, and finally dividing the amendment int< 
two separate amendments to be voted on. 

With these steps accomplished - (l) th 
Publications Committee having approved th 
scholarships and (2) the SGA having approve 
what the Publications Committee approved ~ the 
proposed amendment must be printed in thro 
consecutive issues of the Current Sauce AN! 
the amendment must then be voted on by th. 
student body. WOW! 

A system of checks and balances is fine, bn 
when you get into checks for the checks am 
balances for the balances that is grinding the 
rock a little too hard and trying the patience of 
quite a few individuals. This whole procedure j] 
supposedly democratic, but democracy is lost 
and forgotten in the maze of activity that must be 
traced in order to get anything accomplished 

The procedure the way it stands with all the 
red tape involved, takes so long to go through! 
that by the time the scholarships are approved; 
and ready for use next semester, it will be late, 1 
for improvements planned for the CURRENT 
SAUCE at the very first of the semester. Thit 
means that improvements for the CURRENT 
SAUCE will have to be put off until the needed; 
scholarship is printed three times in the paper 
voted on, and ready for use so the extra people 
who will be needed to handle the expansion can 
be hired to do the extra work. That is of coursei 
unless people can be found who will work for 

To get right down to the nitty gritty, or if yoi 
prefer, to the heart of the matter, there is really 
too much red tape involved ~ too many people 
and groups have their fingers in the pie and it's 
time for some of the fingers to be pulled out 

Control of the number of scholarships that the 
CURRENT SAUCE has should be taken from the 
hands of the SGA. The SGA having control over 
this money is one of the checks for the checks, 
The Student Body Constitution could be amended 
to read, "The Student Publications Committi 
may upon recommendation of the faculty ad 
viser approve additional scholarship positions as 
are deemed necessary for efficient operation." 
The clause following this statement, stating the 
specific number of scholarships, should be 

With this setup, when a student files for 
editorship, he would then submit, alomg with hisl 
list of prospective staff members, the number 3 
scholarships that would be needed for hisl 
proposed staff. This number would be controlled 
and approved by the adviser to the paper the 
business manager of the college, and the Student 
Publications committee according to the need 

In this way the student's money will be 
protected, the number of scholarships will be, 
flexible to meet the varying needs of different 
years, the number of scholarships would be 
decided upon before each year began, and if 
additional scholarships were needed, less time 
would be required to get them. Also the system of 
checks and balances would still be intact and it 
would eliminate the need for students to vote - a 
privilege few exercise and those who do exercise 
the privilege seldom know (in the case of 
amendments) what they are voting for or 
against - they just pull some levers and let it go 
at that. 

If it is absolutely impossible for a program 
similar to the one I have suggested to be used, 
then I suggest that something be done about the 
red tape and the length of time involved. After all 
ook what has happened this time - because of 
the red tape and all the time it took, I will not 
receive the needed scholarship until about a, 
month after our first issue and I had planned, 
improvements for the first issue. Students 
complain about how bad the CURRENT SAUCBl

The Muckraker 

Oct. 23 of this fall, at which time 
the "Muckraker" was being 
written by Jack Hoffstadt. My 
first appearance in this 
capacity did not come until 
November 13, a fact which even 
the most confused observer 
should be able to deduce 
(calendar in hand) that since 
Oct. 23 PRECEDES Nov. 13, I 
could not have possibly written 
those remarks. 

In fact, in my first column, I 
stated the following: "I would 
also like to apologize to the band 
for a mistake Mr. Hoffstadt 
made earlier about the band 
marching on the football field 
five days a week. It seems that 
they seldom have the op- 
portunity to practice on the 
field. ( I want the slate clear as I 
start to write this column.)" 

Before me, as I write this 

column, sits a copy of the 
Student Union Program 
Budget. This budget was sub- 
mitted to the SGA for approval 
only last week at the Dec. 7 
meeting. Approximately $17 000 
of a $24,937.50 budget had been 
spent prior to the SGA approval. 
If the money is going to be spent 
prior to approval, I see no 
necessity in having it approved 
at all. Could it have been

"Gigi Fisher" 

Sight Of The Blind iPoetry Passages! <£gj 

By Deborah Ehlers 

Sometimes when you lend a 
helping hand, you are lending a 
hand to death. 

"When people see a blind 
person and his dog crossing the 
street, they don't seem to 
realize that they are putting 
him in danger by trying to 
help," said Miss Eugenia 
"Gigi" Fisher. 

Gigi, who has been blind from 
birth, is currently a sophomore 
at Northwestern State 
University of Louisiana in 
Natchitoches. Come rain, sleet, 
fire or snow, she and her three 
year old German Shepard, 
Oma, can been seen hurrying 
across campus at the fast pace 
of every college student who is 
trying to reach class on time. 

All 4' 11" of Gigi encompass a 
world of determination and 
good humor and her quick smile 
and friendlir - increase her 
popularity ai..~.,g the students. 

As a resident of Pineville, she 
was graduated from Pineville 
Senior High School and during 
her 20 years, she has lived in 
Houston, Tex., Baton Rouge, 
and Pride ,La. 

She is the oldest of four 
children. Her sister is a senior 
at Tioga High School,; one of 
her brothers is a student at 
Northeast Louisiana State 
University, Monroe, majoring 
in Physics, and her youngest 
brother is in the eighth grade. 

Gigi is a journalism major 
with four or five semesters of 
study remaining. She works 
with the publicity officer for her 
sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, 
writing articles for the sorority 
magazine, Phoenix, and the 
school newspaper, The Current 

Miss Karen Menge, Gigi's 
roommate in Sabine Dormitory, 
is also her reader, although Gigi 
has most of her books on tapes. 
Her reason for using tapes is 
that Braille books are too bulky 
and hard to store in a dorm. 

Oma also stays in the dorm 
with Gigi. "They never 
separate Oma from me," she 
said. "Oma rode with me on the 
plane when I brought her back 
froi.. Morristown, N.J. a little 
over a year ago. She's a lot of 
company to me, even though I 
don't really have enough time to 
give her much attention." 

When Gigi started college in 
August of 1969, she brought 
Oma with her. She had had the 
dog home from the training 
school approximately three 
days when she enrolled for the 
semester. Both Gigi and Oma 
were novices to college and 
campus routine and bustle. 

For a month before classes 
began at Northwestern, Gigi 
went to other classes in 
Morristown to learn about the 
handling and care required by 
her seeing-eye dog. The dog's 
original trainer was Richard 
Jenkins jnd he had worked with 
Oma for three months before 
she and Gigi met. 

"We didn't have regular 
classes," noted Gigi. "They 
were more along the lines of 
practical walking classes with 
the pupils and their dogs 
walking in town twice a day. 

"We were taught to let the 
dogs lead the way. They'll stop 
at curbs, stairs and doorways 
and will lead you out of the way 
of parked cars and other ob- 

"Although they lead, you 
have to know where you want to 
go and you have to praise them 
when they do what's right. For 
without a reward of some kind, 
they'll be just like a human and 
quit trying. In the same sense, 
the dogs have to be punished 
and scolded when they make a 
mistake because if they are 
allowed to get away with it 
once, they could get lax in their 

"The only way a person can 
work with a seeing-eye dog is to 
trust the dog completely," Gigi 
said. "Everytime I try to be a 
heroine and find my way across 
the large parking pot between 
Sabine and the Arts and Science 
Building without allowing Oma 
to lead, I get lost." 

Although she has never been 
in a position of great danger, 
Gigi has heard of instances 
when a seeing-eye dog has 
dragged his handler out of a 
threatening situation. 

The dog's character, size and 
weight plus the person's 
character, size and weight are 
all considered in matching the 
dog and handler. 

"They never give girls male 
dogs, " expl. _.ied Gigi. "One 
reason is that male dogs are 
.lore aggressive and must be 
controlled by someone they 
know is strong enough to stop 
them. Male dogs are much too 
strong for a girl to handle." 

In Gigi's class at Morristown, 
which consisted of an equal 
number of men and women, out 
of 17 dogs only two were male. 
Dog types varied from German 
Shepards, part Shepards, 
Labrador Retrievers and 

Oma was one of the dogs from 
the school's own kennels. 
Seeing-Eye, Inc., which Gigi 
attended, is the oldest school for 
training guide dogs and the only 
seeing eye school. It was 
founded in January, 1929 by 
Mrs. Dorothy Harrison Eustis. 

Not all guide dogs are true 
seeing eye dogs for there are 
other schools which also train 
dogs to guide the blind.

The first dog purchased at the 
school costs the person $150 with 
each succeeding dog costing 
$50. Every individual must pay 
for the dog himself without help 
from any organization, but no 
one is refused a dog because of 
lack of funds. The school feels 
that if a person has to pay for 
the dog it shows that he wants 
to be independent, will venture 
out on his own and not just 
purchase the dog to make a pet 
of it. 

At Northwestern Gigi finds 
most of the other students 
considerate and cooperative. 
Before she became a familiar 
figure, students tended to want 
to help constantly but there 
have only been two of three 
incidents of too much help since 
school started this semester. 

"There are two problems I 
have with the kids here," said 
Gigi. "One is that they want to 
pet Oma while she is on duty, 
trying to lead. In a letter I 
received from Seeing-Eye, Inc., 
they said that petting dogs on 
duty can be very dangerous for 
the handler because it distracts 
them from their jobs. 

"The other problem is with 
doors.. .everyone wants to open 
a door for me but invariably let 
it slam too soon and catch Oma 
in it. It makes her nervous 
around doors, which isn't good, 
and I just can't seem to con- 
vince them to let the doors 
alone. Oma's been trained to 
handle the situation. 

Gigi was not able to bring 
Oma to school before classes to 
let her become acquainted with 
the campus and because of this 
lack of time, there were several 
days when i. s e and Oma wan- 
dered far off c rse before they 
finally reached their 
destination. Now, however, 
Oma is a veteran with 
knowledge of every crack in the 

Gigi is a typical student who 
likes some teachers and dislikes 
others ; she enjoys some courses 
and finds others sheer boredom. 
She enjoys football games, 
concerts and other school ac- 
tivities, and she's always ready 
to express views on life and

Return From War 

by Mark Rambin 

When I returned from Vietnam 
with my chest laden with medals 
to show to my Love 
she- said, 

"Your trinkets soon rust 
and gather dust. 

Don't show me the ugly rewards 
of war well done. 

Your medals are soon forgotten 
and tucked away in a drawer, 

and lost to the ages. 

So that I may be strong

or a song of love and peace. 

Then will I Love You

All fraternities, sororities, and 
interested club groups pay close 
attention to this note from 
Coach Ernest Hill: 

We are interested in 
organizations and-or students 
performing in the pre-game and 
halftone activities of the North- 
western State University 
Demon home basketball games. 
Through this type of par- 
ticipation, we wish to create 
student involvement in this 
phase of the athletic program. 
If you or your organization have 
some type of talent or interest, 
please contact me at the 
Coliseum, 6686. 

Following is a suggested list 
of activities. All suggestions 
and ideas will be welcomed and 

1. Singing of National Anthem 
by a person or persons. 

2. Playing of National Anthem 
with a solo musical instrument 
or musical group. 

3. Playing and singing groups 
of any size for halftone. 

4. Skit performance for pre- 
game or half-time show. 

5. Dance or marching per-

neglected questioning the 
students on their approval of the 
budget. This seems like quite a 
large amount of student money 
being spent in a manner that the 
students have no voice in. 

Included in the budget is an 
allocation of $800 to be used by 
the publicity Committee. Only 
$100 was provided for research 
and development. I did not 
realize that the Union 
Association presented activities 
to warrant spending $800 for 
publicity. However, I did notice 
that if the Union Association 
continues to allocate a measley 
$100 for development and 
research, it will continue to be 

I received a message through 
the grapevine the other day. 
Some of the house directors 
have conspired to hold me down 
and cut my hair off. How about 
it, mom, what's the word? 

I used to have 
a handicap. 

There are an awful lot of other 
people who could be saying the 
same thing. 

Five million, in fact. 

But the real pity is they don't 
even know it. 

What's wrong with them? Heart 
disease. Cancer. Epilepsy. Stroke. 
Visual or hearing problems. Mental 
retardation or emotional illness. 
Loss of limbs. Or any of dozens of 
disabling conditions. 

What's more, the HURRAH pro- 
gram can help them. 

Because HURRAH stands for 
"Help Us Reach & Rehabilitate 
America's Handicapped." 

HURRAH can provide, the job 
training, the medical aid and the 
guidance that can make the differ- 
ence between living a handicapped 
life and really starting to live. 

If you think you've got a handi- 
cap, write to HURRAH, Box 1200, 

Washington, D.C. 20013. 

We'll send you free information 
on rehabilitation, and a directory

maybe we can change your mind,

Northwestern takes to the 
road Monday against pre- 
season Gulf States Conference 

favorite Southwestern before its 
next home game Dec. 17 with 
Nicholls State. 

The Louisiana Wildlife and 
Fisheries Commission has 
purchased 12,978 acres of 
hardwood-covered bottomland 
in Concordia Parish which is to 
be developed into a permanent 
wildlife management area. 

The land was bought from the 
Jay-Kay Corporation at ap- 
proximately $75.00 on acre, or 
$973,399.50. Half of the price will 
be refunded to the =tate by the 
Federal Bureau of Outdoor 
Recreation. Thus, the cost to 
the state will be $487,500 or 
$37.50 an acre. 

The area is located about 51 
miles south of Vidalia and is 
almost adjacent to the Grassy 
Lake and Red River Wildlife 
Management areas. 

This stand of bottomland 
hardwoods offers excellent 
deer, squirrel and rabbit 
hunting as well as some 
waterfowl hunting. The watered 
areas will also be used for 
fishing since the bass, bream, 
and crappy fishing is good there 

According to the Louisiana 
Wildlife and Fisheries Com- 
mission bottomland hardwoods 
in Northeast Louisiana are 
being cleared at a rate of over 
100,000 acres a year. 

Many of these acres have 
been planted in soybeans and 
some land has been flooded by

than the happy I seemed to be when 
I was stoned." 

The girl in the picture is named Chris. For over a year, she was on amphetamines, powerful drugs known 

s peed." This is how she describes it: 

"I think 'speed' is a lot worse than heroin. Kids have got to 
know about it, because they can fall so easily into taking it 
through the diet pill hassle, or needing something to help them 
study. You know, that's crazy. Because the combination of am- 
phetamines and no sleep just blows your memory completely. 
There are whole sections of my life which I just can't remember. 
It got to be just 'do a little more, do a little more,' until that was 
all there was. And the 'cashing' . . . sometimes the 'crashing' is 
just really awful! 

"For me to stop taking it. I had to feel that people were car- 
ing. And they were. I was really lucky. I was very close to two 
people that were really into amphetamines very deeply, and I 
loved them a lot. But as far as they were concerned, the only 
thing that they had was the 'meth,' and that was their life. And 
they're both dead now." 

"Dexies," "bennies," "meth" are all called "speed" these 
days. And people who know "speed" know "speed" kills!

Kisatchie reservoir will do just 
that-flood a good size area of 
hardwood forests. 

In the past six years the 
Louisiana conservation fund 
has "lost" over $10 million. 

Due to an obscure law that 
has only been used during the 
term of Governor McKeithen 
money that is declared supplus 
in the conservation fund can be 
transfered to the general 
treasury. If the money isn't 
appropriated it can be declared 
surplus. This created "surplus"

By Lynn Rollins 

Don't be surprised if Stan 
(The Man ) Lee earns the title of 
"Super Sub" before the current 
basketbasketball season ends. 
He's well on his way to 
receiving that distinction. 

Take Lee's performance 
against East Texas State 
Monday night in Prather 
Coliseum. Stan, with ice water 
in his veins, plopped in a pair of 
free throws with two seconds 
left to give NSU an 87-86 
overtime win. 

Lee scored Northwestern 's 
last four points as he canned a 
24-footer to bring the Demons 
within a point of the visitors 
with 1:12 remaining. He 
finished with six after coming 
off the bench in the second half. 

It wasn't the first time Lee 
has "done his thing" while 
relieving one of the starters. 
"The Man" fired in five points 
in three minutes last week 
against the Houston Cougars 
and helped bring the Purple and 
White back to only a three point 
deficite late in the contest 
before nationally ranked 
Houston went on to take a 13- 
point victory. 

In Between Player 

At 6-3, Lee is one of those 
players who is hampered by an 
"in between" size. Stan finds 
rebounding against the larger 
forwards a problem and 
maneuvering with the smaller, 
quicker guards just as 

Yet through hard work and a 
heart as big as a basketball, Lee 
has turned his size into an ad- 
vantage. "My size doesn't 
handicap me too much," he 
says, "because it's easier to 
drive against the big forwards 
and because I played guard on 
the junior varsity, I had to shoot 
from the outside. Of course, 
rebounding is tougher." 

Lee is listed as a forward this 
season but can make the ad- 
justment to guard if the 
situation demands. "It gives us 
better mobility from the bench 
with a versatile player like 
Stan," Coach Tynes Hildebrand 
said. "He's a fine offensive 

player and will see a lot of 
action for us this year." 

A junior from New Orleans, 
Lee breathes basketball. 
"Everyone wants to start," the 
sharpshooter admits, "but if I 
can help the team from the 
bench, then I'll do my best." 
Bench Contributes 

With Lee leading the way, the 
entire bench contributed 20 
points to help Northwestern 
record its second triumph 
against one setback. East Texas 
slipped to 0-4. 

"I've been satisfied with the 
play of our reserves," 
Hildebrand stated" Allen Posey 
(four points), Randy Veuleman 
(six points), and Jim Krajefska 
(four points), all did a good job 
in Monday's game." 

But it wasn't just the play of 
the subs that edged ETS. 
Sensational sophomore Vernon 
Wilson gunned in 26 tallies to 
lead both teams. Wilson, who 
averaged 24 points in the first 
three games, also pulled down 
six rebounds from his guard 

Marvin Willett added 15 and 
Thurmond Baptiste had 11 to 
give NSU three men in double 
figures. Al Mason netted 25 
points to top the Texans. 
Victory at the Line 

The Demons won at the foul 
line where they converted 23 of 
32. East Texas managed four 
more field goals than the 
Demons but only had 16 chances 
at the charity stripe, hitting 14. 

Both squads shot over 50 per 
cent from the field in the nip and 
tuck first half as the Demons 
took a 45-43 advantage to the 
dressing room. 

The Purple and White slowly 
pulled away from the taller 
visitors in the second half and 
with 5:37 remaining, Krajefska 
scored on a tip-in and NSU held 
their biggest margin of the 
night, 71-63. 

But Northwestern, trying to 
salt it away with a freeze, 
committed numerous floor 
mistakes, and with two seconds 
showing Jim Lefever ripped the 
cords from 20 feet away on the 
baseline to force the game into 
overtime at 77 apiece. 

„ Stan Lee 

The Demons came hack on a 

10-foot jumper from Baptiste 
but East Texas ran off seven 
straight points and scratched to 
an 84-79 advantage with 2: 13 left 
on the clock. 

At that point Wilson con- 
verted two free throws, followed 
by an ETS bucket and a short 
bank shot by Baptiste to set up 
Lee's winning heroics.

Prisoners Present 
Informative Program 

By Vicki Prather 

Niva Chavez 

"I feel I have wasted my 
life," stated Audrey Smith, one 
of the four women who visited 
Northwestern from the Saint 
Gabriel Women's Penal In- 
stitution Tuesday night Dec. 8 in 
the Arts and Sciences 

Audrey and three other 
members of the Narcotics 
Anonymous group at Saint 
Gabriel's were invited to speak 
in the Drug Forum sponsored 
by the Sociology Club. 

The forum was opened by Dr. 
Millard J. Bienvenu who 
presented a general format of 
the program. Dr. Bienvenu 
introduced Mr. Paul Phelps, a 
native of Louisiana and the 
current Assistant Director of 
Institutions in Baton Rouge. 

Phelps stated that drugs are 
now in large scale use 
throughout the country whereas 
drug use was once "restricted 
to major metropolitan areas." 

Phelps said that treatment for 
drug addiction was "almost 
nonexistant." According to 
Phelps, the cure rate at 
hospitals such as Lexington, 
which is primarily concerned 
with treatment of drug ad- 
diction, is less than 5 percent. 
When asked why the percentage 
was so low, he replied, "There 
is no sure turn off to drugs." 

People from all walks of life 
and of all ages are drug 
abusers, according to Phelps. 
Even "people involved in 
research are resorting to heroin 
as an escape." 

Education, in Phelp's opinion, 
is the public's first line of 
defense against drug abuse. 
Phelps also stated that the most 
seriously disabling thing in drug 
cases is the arrest. 

"This becomes a permanent 
part of your personal past 
history;" he stated. 

The four women, Audrey 
Smith, 40; Sunny Hightower, 28; 
Gail Shorty, 27; and Darleen 
Metzler, 31, are members of 
Narcotics Anonymous at Saint 
Gabriel. There are from 20 to 30 
women involved in this 

The speakers are all serving 
from 3 to 7 years on charges of 
illegal possession of narcotics 
or drug related crimes. The 
women come from all walks of 
life and started using drugs for 
completely different reasons. 

The audience delighted in 
Sunny's bright personality and 
Audrey's frank attitude. 
Darleen and Gail added a more 
serious tone to the evening's 
program. Each woman was 
unafraid to add her comments. 
All were eager to help with 
information whenever they 

Audrey Smith is from Biloxi, 
Mississippi and has been a drug 
user for 20 years. About 15 of 
these years have been spent in 
and out of corrective in- 
stitutions. She has been sen- 
tenced to three years this time. 
Audrey was 17 when she was 
first arrested. 

Sunny Hightower started, 
"Acid is my bag." She is 
originally from Dallas, Texas. 
She was arrested on a drug 
related crime. Sunny, who loves 
donuts, was high on acid when 
she walked into a donut shop 
and demanded the clerk give 
her all her money and three 
dozen chocolate donuts. In- 
stead, she received three years 
in prison. She is also held on a 
retainer from Texas for 
possession of marijuana. 

"Prison is really a drag," she 
said. "Not one of the trips I had 
was worth this." 

The third panelist was Gail 
Shorty. Gail is serving a three 
and a half year sentence which 
will end soon and she will be 
going home. Asked about her 
experiences with drugs, Gail 
said, "It hasn't been anything 

DRUG FORUM - In Tuesday night's drug forum, 
sponsored by NSU's Sociology Club, four women 
prisoners from St. Gabrial State Penal Institution 
gave an informative discussion and question and 
answer program to an interested student audience. 
Pictured left to right are Gail Shorty, 27, Darleen 
Metzler, 31, Audrey Smity, 40, and Sunny Hightower, 
28. Each woman is a member of Narcotics 
Anonymous, an organization actively involved in 
informing the public about the dangers of Narcotic 

Gail started taking pills so she 
could join a street corner club at 
age 13. She has been a heroin 
addict for 14 hears. Asked if she • 
would use drugs again, she 
replied, "I prayed I would die 
last time I was on heroin. I don't 
want any part of it now." 

The fourth young woman was 
Darleen Metzler. Darleen is 
mainly a pull user. She is 
sentenced to seven years for 
possession of heroin, which she 
was selling to help finance her 
boyfriend's habit. Darleen has 
used pills since she was 16 and 
she said," Thank God I have 
never been addicted to the hard 

Darleen is the mother of three 
, boys. All three now go to the 
L.S.U. Research Center for the 
Emotionally Disturbed. 
Darleen was first arrested at 
age 17 for forgery, but was 
restored to citizenship by a full 
pardon. This is her second drug 

When asked their opinions of 
their experiences with drugs, 
Sunny replied, "It could have 
been great introspective 
therapy, but I guess too much of 
a good thing leads to its abuse." 

"I really feel I have wasted 
my life... I've learned that it led 
to nothing. Now I think I can 
cope with life without these 
crutches (drugs)," said 

In questions narrated by Mr. 
Rjpn VcnU) the question of how to 
communicate the dangers of 
drug abuse to students was 
asked. Audrey, from her ex- 
perience with her three children 
replied, "Never tell them no. 
That is the worst thing to do

You can also take them on tours 
through the prison to help show 
them the consequences they 
might have to face." 

As far as turning in friends 
who were drug users were 
concerned, they all agreed with 
Sunny's reply. 

"It's a matter of integrity. I 
don't think you should ever get a 
friend busted, even for their 
own benefit. I would never tell 
them to stop using drugs. I 
would only point out the con- 
sequences so they will be in-

getting into."

At 4th Annual Ba 

By Bill Carter 

Kelly, Editor of Ruston Daily 

Adams presented special 
awards to four journalism 
students, which formally 
initiated them into an honorary 
journalism organization, the 
NSU 30 club. 

Students receiving the 
awards were Bessie Brock, 
Gayle Palmer, Gary Morgan, 
and David Precht. 

Dr. Kilpatrick then formally 
intorduced the guest speaker 
for the evening and greeted him 
on behalf of Northwestern. 

Turner Catledge, a life long 
journalist and former Editor of 
the New York Times, spoke 
about his life as a writer, as well 
as a member of one of the 
world's largest newspapers. 

It was in 1929 that he joined 
the Times staff, where he 
remained until 1970. 

Beginning as a type setter at 
the age of 14, for a newspaper in 
Pennsylvania he went on to 
become one of the world's 
foremost journalists. Recalling 
his days on the Times staff, 
Catledge said, "we saw wars, 
developments in Science, the 
common use of the automobile, 
television, and finally men walk 
on the moon." 

He continued by saying, "I 
feel that I became a part of 
everything I covered. I liked to 
see and I liked to tell what I 

Comparing his small Penn- 
sylvania newspaper to the N.Y. 
Times, he said, "the Times has 
almost 6,000 people employed 
and 360,000 tons of newspapers 
produced a year. In Mississippi 
there are 100 lbs. of ink used a 

week, but on the Times there 
was 100 tons used weekly. The 
payroll of the Mississippi paper 
was $130 weekly, in New York it 
was one million dollars weekly. 

"But," he mentioned, "there 
are the same joys, and the same 
frustrations in every 

Catledge stated, "The press 
has the pressure of time and 
exactness." We deal ex- 
clusively in human being, and 
we in the press must remember 
that we are messengers. We 
must not let our personal 
prejudices interfere with our 
ability to wrtie news." 

When asked what his most 
memorable story he had 
covered was, he replied, "I 
believe it was Mississippi flood. 
It had drama, energy, and 

It was in the writing of this 
story that Catledge began his 
career as a well-known jour- 
nalist across the world. 

Frankie Gaspar, junior upper 
elementary education major 
from Morgan City, was crowned 
Queen at Northwestern's fourth 
annual Winter Ball, last Friday 

Miss Gaspar received the 
highest number of votes in 
recent campus-wide balloting 
sponsored by the NSU Student 
Union Governing Board to 
select a court of nine girls on the 
basis of leadership and service 
to the university. Her identity 
as queen however, was kept 
secret until the Friday night 

He said that he saw a bright 
future for the N. Y. Times. 

Catledge is now retired in 
New Orleans where he is 
currently writing a collection of 
his memories of his journalism 

The highlight of the evening 
was the presentation to

these facilities. Substandard 
food purchasing and 
preparation has resulted in 
mass poisoning in these in- 
stitutions," he continued. 

Many of these facilities were 
found to be nothing more than 
"experimental centers where 
the elderly patients are used as 
guinea pigs for new medicines." 

The failure of the government 
to enforce laws which would 
protect the consumer and 
improve the environment, was 
attacked in many areas. 

One of these was the 
agricultural p
